These plants were in bloom, but no seeds were present. Actually
the thought never ocurred to me. It is about 2 hours away from me,
but perhaps between BG and myself we can collect a bunch of
seeds this Summer.

I also saw some of these plants fully submerged, but the leaves
seem to have a water repellent quality (they're rather waxy) and I
assume they cannot survive in this state for very long.

Totally awesome plant - beats the pants off of those Echinodorus

my first instinct is to laugh. But then I think, what if
I was an ant, and she fell on me. Then it wouldn't seem
quite so funny.
