  • Tissue Cultured: Ensures a sterile, pest-free, and disease-free plant.
  • Appearance: Long, slender green blades that can grow up to 50 cm (20 inches) tall.
  • Versatile: Suitable for a variety of aquascapes, including Dutch-style, Nature, and Iwagumi layouts.
  • Hardiness: Adaptable to a range of water conditions and lighting levels.
  • Low Maintenance: Requires minimal care, making it ideal for beginners.
  • Oxygenation: Enhances oxygen levels in the aquarium, promoting a healthy environment for fish and invertebrates.

Care Instructions:


  • Optimal: Medium to high lighting (2-4 watts per gallon or more) is recommended to encourage robust growth and prevent the plant from becoming leggy.
  • Tolerant: Can tolerate low lighting, but growth will be slower and less dense.

Water Parameters:

  • Temperature: 18-28°C (64-82°F)
  • pH: 6.0-7.5
  • Hardness: Soft to moderately hard water (2-15 dGH)


  • Substrate: Use a nutrient-rich substrate or supplement with root tabs to provide essential nutrients.
  • Planting Depth: Plant the roots gently into the substrate, ensuring the base is secure but not buried too deeply.


  • Trimming: Trim the blades periodically to maintain the desired height and promote bushier growth.
  • Propagation: Propagates through runners; new plants will emerge around the base of the parent plant. Separate and replant these runners to expand coverage.

CO2 and Fertilization:

  • CO2: Beneficial but not required. Adding CO2 can enhance growth and vitality.
  • Fertilization: Regular dosing with liquid fertilizers will support healthy growth. Focus on providing nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, and micronutrients.


  • Foreground to Midground: Ideal for creating a grassy carpet effect in the foreground or a dense, natural-looking backdrop in the midground.
