    I put a few of these in my mum's small pond and they were doing ok
    although now the edges of the leaves have going brown and look like they
    are disintegrating or have been nibbled (??) by something. They haven't
    flowered since I put them in a year ago.

    Older pads need to be picked off, they only last 10-14 days (is my guess as
    I've never kept count). If they were planted too deep in the soil it will
    take them awhile to grow out and be able to flower. If it has been a year
    since transplant I suspect they will bloom this year.... assuming they
    having reached the end of the potting container and/or they've been fed
    with some sort of plant stick. ~ jan

    They aren't actually in pots, they are just floating around, thats how
    they were supplied. When I got them they just looked like a small bunch
    of curled twigs.
