Description

This culture form of the stalk plant Bacopa Monnieri is more compact and, under good light conditions, almost a creeping plant. By pinching off all vertical growing shoots, the plant can maintain a low and close growth, since it willingly creates a large number of side shoots.

Furthermore, the plant grows well in the shadow of other plants. Very suitable as a bit higher carpet – or bushy plant in the middle or front of the aquarium. The plant becomes more vertical growing and less compact without CO2 additive and decreased light conditions.

Like most stem plants, it is most decorative when planted in small groups. Easy to propagate by cuttings; take a side shoot and plant it in the bottom. Removal of the central growth tip will produce numerous side shoots within a few weeks. These can be removed near their attachment to the primary stem and secured in the substrate, where they will rapidly take root.

Type: Stem
Origin: North America

    Great plant and growing perfect

    Came in great condition and has been growing well in my tank. I put root tabs under as this is my first plant and it’s planted in a sand tank. Only been a few days but it seems to be happy and popping out of the water daily
