Proserpinaca palustris


In the emerged stage, this stem plant originating from Cuba, looks rather unimpressive with its simple green leaves. After a period of acclimatisation under water, the plant will gradually reveal its feathery and magnificently colorised underwater leaves. Proserpinaca grows slowly and is recommended for Nano Cubes. The stalks do not branch out too much, which is why the head cuttings should be put back on the same spot. The lower, no longer nice-looking part of the stalk should be removed.
