I have a 140 gallon tank, do you think the plant will grow all the way over to the other side (my english isn't so good :(, I'm Norwegia )

    It depends on what your light levels and nutrient supply are, most likely will though, it is a super hardy plant. Happy fishkeeping!

    DEFINITLY a possibility. I have one in a 60 gallon the tank is 25 inches tall 4 foot long and my val. has grown. From the back it covers some of the top of the tank and it's actually coming down the front of my tank! 1 of the 'arms' as I call them has to be close to 3 feet. It keeps having little babies too. I like it, neat hardy plant. Get one and try it out bud. Good luck.

This plant seems to need lots of light. In my tall narrow triangular tank it grew well at the front - I didnt know it has a few months dormancy and threw it out. i have re-purchased but its at the back in a dark corner and not doing well at all.

i have one of these that just takes over the aquarium. it breeds ferociously and even when i take it out of the aquariun it just pops up with new ones. i want to control it better with a social fish that could eat the plant and help keep it under control.
