Well, in a way I'm glad to hear all this. When I got it home and it looked so bad, I thought, "Dang, my Petsmart tricked me again and sold me a non-aquatic plant." At least this time Petsmart was honest. Although I did find a dead crowntail while I was there. :( But this stupid thing . . . it's now residing at the bottom of the lawn and garden bin and good riddance. I'll try your suggestion, Littlebittyfish, and get wisteria. Thanks for all the input, everyone, you've helped a ton and probably saved me a lot of work.
