Ok. Petsworld in pitt st had banana lilies DAMN cheap ($1.20 each, 3 for $3) so I've got.... 6)

Whats the best way to plant them/care for them. Seems a mutant plant - the leaves and roots both going upwards?

I've planted part of it under the substrate (sand) and kept the leaves facing up?

(no insult intended by plant geek. I'm a fish geek, no doubt!)

Thats a perfect link. Got it right it seems. Turned out the plants had that I was told were banana lilies, were not. So i bought 6! (they were cheap!)

Taken out a bit of the elodea and replaced it with the lilies. One of the plants has about 10 inches of roots/branches on it, so I'm pretty happy! just have to see how it grows now Click the image to open in full size.
