Egeria densa


Pondweed is probably the most well-known of all aquatic plants. Thanks to its rapid growth it is the perfect plant for dealing with algae. It is also a popular oxygenator for aquariums and ponds. As with most stem plants, propagation is not complicated. Simply cut off the top or side shoots and replant them. In aquariums it may be necessary to cut the plant back often, due to the speed at which it spreads. Highly recommended for stabilising new setups.
