Bacopa caroliniana


A stem plant that is one of the classic aquarium plants. It grows much more slowly than other stem plants, and needs a well-lit location to help it produce the pretty brown-colored leaves. Emersed plants are pure green and display obvious hairs on the stems. Place in a large group to achieve the most appealing effect, ideally with the stems arranged in order of ascending height toward the back of the tank. The effect is more harmonious for the observer.
