Arrived as a nice healthy starter plant that I potted and added to our pond at a water depth of 6 inches on a pond shelf to acclimate it to our pond for a few days before stepping it down in deeper water of 1 ft and experienced some browning n dying off of most of the plants leaves but , in a few days of being in the pond it has began rebounding and adding new growth and new leaf growth in a matter of days ..
