The other day I saw a plant at a fish store that looked sort of like an amazon sword plant except it was like it only had the veins and the outer part of the leaf and nothing in between and also the leafs were much longer. (sorry not a plant expert). I was wondering if anyone knew what it was called? The owner said it was rare and cost about 80 dollars I just cant remember what it was called.

Hilarious! I thought they were charging $80 for a snail eaten plant.

They grow from a bulb/tuber, need a lot of light, they are typically less than $20, depending on the size. Beautiful plant
