On a non-aquatic basis... the depth of the root/crown planting has a huge influence on the plant... both root and leaf... What's your thoughts on the issue? Bill

No clue. Maybe someone else can chime in. In the past I've had them sit in one spot for so long that they sent down roots just like this one. Only difference is that this new one lost all the banana looking roots. Guess they rotted away or got used up for energy since I'm assuming they were meant as energy reserves.

How much light a using Amp. In my exaoerince with them they send up there pads for catching light an when there's too much light are prolong exsposure the first sighn is the bigger leaves fold at the edges next they turn brownish on the pad it sent up the pad takes all the light for photosynthesis the smaller leaves are secondary consumption leaves when you trim the pads you gotta cut back on light until it sends up another sprout. They also do well in temp ranges from 75 85. Also with fertilizer it sometimes need to be flushed away from the pot at times meaning removing the pot an running warm water through the roots to immate irrigation from rain. I would use regular black dirt ( the muddy dirt suff found when removing topsoil it's loaded with nutrients. I've learned from trial an era the first sight of brown means it's burning up scorcth is what us farmers call it. An to much fertilizer an not enough will give you the same effect. Hope this helps out. I've uses the same format use for the clay balls except I added black sand an no fertilizers an a spoon full of water activated carbon believe it works the swords are sprouting all ready
