I have good luck with L.repens x arcuata (the red ones). They branch like 
crazy in my tank. I think this plant needs unusually bright light.In my, 
the ones that are in the shade are not doing as well as the ones under 
the full light.

As with other red leafed plants, I need to give them fertilizer boost next
to their root to keep the leaves color red.

   Hi
   I tried to grow this plant in my lily pool and it couldn't take the 
competition for
space so I moved it to the stream in my terrarium and it got battered around
when I had trouble with leaks so I moved it to the pool in the greenhouse and
it slowly disintegrated on me. I suspect it didn't get enough light and the 
cabombe
smothered it.
   The one I had was all diamond shaped, floating leaves..No submerged 
foliage
at all. I got it at a local pond shop where they were growing it potted in a 
shallow
shaded fiberglass tank. They told me it required no full sun but I suspect 
that was
wrong.
    Isn't it a gorgeous plant? Hope you have better luck with yours.

Hi,  I grew this plant outdoors a few summers ago in a shallow 
flowerpot filled with water.  The waterlevel was about 6" above the 
substrate.  It propagated by runners.  I live in northern NY where 
the summers are in the 80's to low 90's for stretches of the 
summer.  The substrate was a mixture of pebbles and dirt that 
came in the pond container it was sold in.  I never got the plant to 
flower:(  The leaves formed a very pretty design on the water 
surface.  Ray
