Hi guys,

Need some help from you all to identify this plant. I bought this in Singapore at a local fish aquarium shop. This plant is to be placed under water. Thanks in advance!!! =)

Its Dracaena marginata "colorama". Its not an aquatic plant but I have seen them sold as aquarium plants.

Agree with D. Marginata, and yup some people loves to drown non aquatic plants in aquarium, eventually it will die, especially if water circulation and lights are low. I find that as plant abusive.. Glare
