Have I told any of you that I am kind of a dumbass? I always tell people "reasearch before you buy" and "know what you're getting before you get it." Sometimes I wish I'd listen to myself...

So I'm in Petco (mistake #1) and I see a bunch of plants on clearance. They are in those little plastic tubes that they sell plants in. They are marked "Live Aquatic Plant, For Freshwater Aquariums." They are cheap and look cool so I say what the hell and buy a few bunches.

Turns out the plant isn't an aquatic plant. It dies when maintained underwater. Oh well, maybe I'll make a terranium.
