    It came along with 8 other plants that i ordered off of planted aquarium central and i just love it. Unfortunately ive lost the sheet that came with all the orders and their name, and the email has since been deleted. I think its a bulb plant, has nice little thin pink leaves that curl at the sides sort of like some type of crypts, but also has these huge green round leaves at the top coming from a stem.
    The pictures dont really do it justice since my camera sucks but i took pics in different lightimg. its a bright but yet thin almpost transparent pink in person

    It's an Echinodorus, commonly called sword plant. The floppy pink leaves represent the submerged form, whereas the thick leaves on stems are what the plant produces when it has access to the air. Presumably this plant was grown emersed at the nursery before being submerged in your aquarium, as many aquatic plants actually grow faster that way.

    Would you happen to know how to keep all the leaves that pink? Some grow bigger and become green. Also, how would i propogate, is there some way to get two of these??

    It's an oriental sword. The colour will still stay pink on new leaves. The pink gradually disappears on older leaves. In other words, the middle of the rosette plant will always be pink :)
