How deep is you tank and how tall are the leaves. I really love the flowers protruding thru the surface and that is partly why i acquired these plants. What is the wattage and duration of your lighting to achieve the nice red coloration?
I just planted 12 B. aubertii in my 24" deep 90g. It took me a few days to figure out that i needed to remove some of the outer leaves from new plants to get the new plants to stay in the substrate. The first 6 went in the back corner and did not get the trimming; i resorted to large stones to help keep the "ballons" on the bottom. All the old leaves melted anyway. The next few went in the middle of the tank. If the leaves reach the top of the water, i will keep the ones in the back. Otherwise, i will keep the other plants in the middle. Either way, some will likely be available for sale or trade. My tank probably doesn't need 12 of these rather wide plants.
