I was not in a rush to use this plant, so i left it inside a longish plastic container filled with water and covered up. I threw in 2 snails from my guppy container.
Today out of curiosity why the plant doesnt seem to be growing at all, so i stared closer. To my astonishment, i saw a leaf moving, then a caterpillar looking 毛毛蟲 was crawling out from that leaf. That leaf isnt flat, it was curled up like a tube. Out of worry, i looked up and down and realised there are a few more such tube looking leaves with these 毛毛蟲 moving.
I threw the whole plant away and wash up the container.

Just curious. Is this normal??? I have used this plant several times before, but i never seen these "insect" before. Regret not taking a pic before throwing away, because i panicked and just threw...
This is what I found. I pluck out one of the rolled up leaf before I threw away the entire plant. Put the leaf into my pail of waste water which I recycle to water plants. Am surprised this fellow is still alive 3 days later!

the $1.80 oto i bought from Nanyang Aqurium is super hardy. i just dump into any fish tanks, it will clean algae up and still survive.
