Patty I may have to move mine if it get that large. The tilles have very interesting forms and they are easy to care for. How often do you water it and how, just spray or dip.
That make a splash of color when it is blooming.

Lol this would be too large for my tank. I had a lot of different tillies at one time and loved their flowers. There is a vendor in Kentucky that has beautiful plants and reasonable prices, Plant Oddities. If you are looking to add tillies to your collection, they are so easy, try there.

I spray my tillies most of the time, rarely dip them though I do spray heavily daily. I also fertilize them with orchid fertz weakly.

Most tillies ... especially the silvery ones ... require very good air circulation which can make them difficult in may terrs. They need to dry off quickly after watering. (For this reason they are not very popular for use in very wet, humid terrs like those in the pdf hobby.)

Paul I have mine at the top of the tank right under the lights. I manual spray every day with the humidity from 70% to 85% with no fan only the venting from the exo terra vent and a one inch gap in the glass top. I also have about one inch of water in the bottom of the tank. They dry out fairly quickly from the heat of the two jungle dawn led lamps in the exo terra hoods.
