It is not an underwater plant...I would expect it to rot and die eventually in a fish tank.

If you keep the leaves and part of the stem above the water it will still grow. Think of it as a bog plant. Mine has almost doubled in size growing it this way.

i used mine in an open top tank. LOVED the look of it and it grew super well. GL to ya and just do as others suggested and leave it partially submerged. heres a pic to get an idea. after 6 months id say they trippled in size. the largest stood 12+ inches above the water line.

I think bamboo can be good for aquariums.... But It can be very dangerous if it touches the ground...
