We sell plants in all stages and states of growth. Some plants we sell are grown underwater, these are called submerged plants and others are grown partially in water. We call these immersed plants. Below is a photo of Ludwigia Repens in its submerged and immersed state. This is a perfect example of what an aquatic plant will look like based on how its grown. If you receive an immersed plant from us, it can take up to two weeks before its fully transitioned to its subermged state.
