You can put it growing out of your aquarium, with just the roots in the water. That for sure is dracaena sanderiana, but it can still flourish if the leaves have air!

noooooooooo!
i new it looked too good to be true. i should have known not to impulse buy...
thank you...
I think i already know where you got it! There's really only two place that you can really find this plant! Don't worry, ur not the only one.. i got suckered into buying 8 of em cuz i thought they looked gorgeous!
I think most people just call them marsh plants! I've been told that if you want them to survive, they have to be above water, and they're pretty seasonal, that when winter does come they die off in a pot of soil, and regrow themself the next spring! At least that's how i wuz told to care for it!

Lol I just saw them today at Fraser Aquariums.
I got suckered in some darker green ones before, they survived for a few months in my tanks then started to turn to mush.
Good luck I hope you find a use for them.

ya i got it from petsmart, it was just called assorted potted plant. It turns out every plant except one under that name are not true aquarium plants. i ended up putting it in a little vase on my window sill. it seems to be surviving just fine there.

I saw that plant at Petsmart as well a quite a while ago. The petsmart guy told me not to buy it as it will just die.
