Beautiful plant to have in a tank!! The plant arrived in poor condition, could be due to the height of the plant, but most of the leaves had snapped from the stems and the leaves were very fragile to the point that when I was placing the plant into the tank the rest of the leaves fell off. The Marble Queen Ridican Sword is such a beautiful centerpiece plant that it’s definitely worth another try!!
