Yep, it does this alright. Mine's so long it bends sideways and then sends long roots down.

80 degrees is fine. Maybe you dont have enough nutrients or something is wrong with your light source such as keeping it on too little or long? I know they are "low light" plants...but they still require 8-12 hours a day...?

I hate this plant with a passion, notorious for melting and killing off the fish. Even in perfect conditions I've still had this plant crash.

Thats crazy!! I've only had problems in one of my tank and its because the bulbs are horrible. I wonder why they didnt do well in yours?

Mine melted at first, but then came back with a vengeance. Maybe I just got lucky.

80F is really pushing it for this plant, sometimes it can survive though..
The way she planted it is fine.
In all these months, mine has never melted at all. None of my plants have.
