The Aluminum Plant gets its name from the aluminum color finish on the leaves. These fish are true semi-aquatic plants and suited for a paludarium or terrarium. However if the aluminum plant is completely submerged in a fish tank it will look fine for several weeks before the inevitable demise. Aluminum plants are native to Vietnam where they grow in bogs and swamps and grow to 12 inches. Each order of Aluminum plants come in a bunch of 5 with a lead weight so they can be fully immersed if desired. These pseudo aquarium plants come about six inches tall with large leaves and fit easily with a box of fish.
