Barclaya longifolia is a beautiful and distinctive solitary plant,
available in green varieties with light-green leaves and pink underneath (or in
dark-red). It flowers well in aquariums - even under water if the aquarium is so
tall that the flower cannot reach the water surface. Dormant periods sometimes
occur when the leaves disappear, but the plant starts forming new leaves a few
months later. The dormant period can often be broken by moving the plant.
