    Everyone Iv talked to says they cant go inside they turn into mush because of the lack of light and heat in the water.


    The only real way to keep the plant alive is to heat the water and use a high power MH light .


    Last year I put them in my green house and they still all died in my green house .


    Well anyways good luck! You will need it [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    2 feet is small . For a pond that size I would start off with 1 . thats what I started with in mine. You got to rember they take over like crazy in the warm months. From just this summer starting with one plant I have them all over in my 2 temp ponds in my green house and my 7 by 7 foot pond there so thick in there I had to put some in the trash because my other water plants would have been killed.


    I think if you do plant them they have to be wet all the time. Like in a 1 gal pot placed in water . Im not sure but I think they have to have there roots wet at all times and yo would still have to heat the roots just like a coconut palm the roots have to be warm all the time..
