Madagascar lace

So I bought a large one that promptly melted at the stems/petioles. Bulb has a lot of dark brown roots and at least three newer ones. I rinsed the nub and half planted it. Any thoughts on if it'll come back?

The MLLP is one of the more difficult plants to grow in aquariums. They are so beautiful but so finicky. Root tabs, medium/high light, very soft water with gentle flow and CO2 of at least 25ppm. They are very prone to getting algae in the laces. You have definitely got a challenge there. OS.

Under the right conditions it will grow like a weed. Easily grows 1/2" daily in my tank

MLLP is a plant for the experienced planted aquarists.
