Will mondo grass survive in low light conditions?

Mondo grass is not a true aquatic plant. It will eventually die if you keep it underwater.

It's often sold as an aquatic plant, they do that just to get money :/

Do you know if Petsmart takes plants back? I definitely don't want anything rotting in my tank. That's a bit disappointing too, it was a really cute plant.

I have some in my 46g tank & its actually doing well at the moment. I've had it for probably 6 months or so. The biggest problem I've had with it is the snails munching on it & I had a spell of black beard algae. I bought it & then looked it up online, decided to keep it, glad I did. How long it'll last well I'll see.

It can survive for some time underwater but it does eventually die off being non-aquatic. A lot of terrestrial plants sold for aquarium use are marginal/bog plants and so can spend some time submerged before dying.
