New plant species discovered

Apparently, this new species is called Nymphaea sp. rubra/sailfinbristlenose pleco. A very rare find indeed:

I wonder if it's an invasive species? How do you plant it?

From what I understand, the sailfin portion of the plant is invasive while the rest is not. It is also hard to root and prefers to move across the tank at regular intervals. Only the most seasoned aquarists (aka patient) will be successful.

Is that a self "fertlizing" plant?

Indeed, and in plentiful quantities. If you look closely, you can see it pumping CO2 directly onto itself.
