Propagation

This plant will send out runners from the mother plant, on these there will be tiny plantlets. Once the plantlets start to grow and develop a root system, they will detach from the mother plant and become independent. If the plant starts to overtake the tank then simply pinch out the runners before the plantlets have developed.

Difficulty

Easy

Short Description

This is an excellent plant for beginners and it can take a wide range of pH parameters. It is just as happy in soft, acidic water as it is in alkaline water. It does require a nutrient rich substrate but is undemanding in all other aspects. In larger aquariums it can be used as a foreground plant and each runner will grow to such a length that it will never be compact but will dot plants over quite a wide area.
