Last week, i got a
very rare red spatterdock, from greenline.
The picture looked awesome so i parted with my Â£6.50 and awaited delivery.
Imagine my surprise when this "water lilly" arrived complete with 2 foot long stems and leaves that were the size of a saucer. Bearing in mind, i only have a 15" deep tank with 3" of substrate (the corm was 5" long !!!), this was a bit of a shock.
Anyway, i chopped all but two of the leaves off and planted it in my tank. It has since thrown out more leaves which i've again had to cut off.
so really, what shall i do with it ?....will it ever be like the picture below ? or have i been ripped off ? Should i contact trading standards
Seriously, can i ever expect mine to get like the pic....if so, how ?
