This is, by far, my favorite plant that I have in my aquarium to date. For some reason it looks like the picture shown, but, at the same time it doesn't. In the pic, it looks like grass, but, in my tank it grows like above then grows out `5 grass stems horizontally, then continues upwards. It looks amazing! Really makes the tank look unique. Unfortunately, that's the best way that I can describe it. I would say it is a unique type of grass, but, it is gorgeous. One last thing, the plant that sent was immaculate! It was in pristine condition and in great health. I have ordered plants from elsewhere that have arrived in all different states of health, these were the best out of any that I have ordered online. Excellent plant!
