I bought just one tiny plant from PetSmart a year ago. Now, I have one huge plant and about five tiny plants. They thrive under the normal lighting that comes with most aquarium hoods. I have two in a 2.5g betta tank and three in my 20g planted tank. They look beautiful! :) Also, it's extremely durable and will survive in any water condition. If you have a (very humid) terrarium you can plant one of these on land.
Goldfish never eat it. EVER. I used to have one of these in a 10g goldfish tank and the goldfish didn't touch it. He did eat the anacharis though. :(
PLUS: It didn't have any snails on it! (But I wouldn't care if it did. My loaches would eat them all!)
I'd have to give this plant five stars. If I didn't, I'd be crazy.

This was the first live plant I bought for my small aquarium and bowl. I was able to cut it in 1/2 and divide it between the two habitats.
It was very easy to plant. I just covered the "roots" with a pond rock. My betta loves to swim around it, the mystery snails like to climb along it (and haven't eaten it), and the ghost shrimp like to hang out at its base and on their leaves.
Very easy to take care of!

UNBELIEVABLE YOU GUYS!
This is a great plant. Every one knows that it's the hardiest plant on the market. But lots of people don't buy them just because they don't look good in stores (small, not healthy color, brown spots all over). After a month in your aquarium, they will be as beautiful as the one on that picture. And it comes with a lot of benefits:
1. Gives oxygen
2. Purifies water
3. Reproduces well
4. Plant for any freshwater tank
5. Tastes bad (fish won't eat it)
6. Hiding and laying eggs spot
7. Grows big
8. Grows on anything (gravel, rocks, driftwood...)
And if you get lucky, you get two of them stuck together! This plant is expensive but it's worth it

A great looking plant
ive read how easy this plant was to maintain and how it doesnt even need to be planted into a substrate (gravel/dirt), it can be attached to rocks and driftwood via sting or rubberband and will eventually latch itself on and then which u can remove the sting. it doesnt need alot of light but can grow much better with it.
-eventually tall background plant
-can easily propagate into more plants increasing the dollar value of your purchase and YOU CAN HAVE MORE PLANTS IN YOUR TANK AT NO ADDITIONAL COST :)
