sorry no pic...just imagination ;)
its a bulb plant.
vivid green.
max length about 2M (79") at its peak of growth.
dies of during winter and grows back again when warmer.
leaves/vines are about 2cm acros.
its not a demanding plant as i have no co2 and low lighting.
thanks in advance :p

Or could be an Aponogeton, as they are seasonal.

What is the leaf shape?
no nothing like that...the vine shape is straight edge with no 'crinkles',pretty rectuanular vine shape.
it grow much taller that the pictures of Aponogeton i have seen.
looking through tropica.com i think i might have found a plant that fits my description-http://www.tropica.com/default.asp
apart form i have never seen my plant grow a shoot out of the side and it says medium-high light where i have very low light and it grow fine.
put the leaf/vine shap is the same.

Thanks for the feedback, glenn.

The plant I use there is Vallisnera spiralis 'tiger'.

But it could be this - http://www.tropica.dk/productcard_1.asp?id=093
