Note: This plant may arrive looking different from the photo, with round leaves. This is due to being grown out of water in high humidity conditions. It will quickly and easily convert to its underwater form, changing its leaf shape and matching the appearance shown in the photo.

Aquarium and Pond Use:

  • Ideal for both aquariums and ponds.
  • In aquariums, it requires medium to very high lighting for optimal growth and coloration.
  • For ponds, pot this plant and place it in a semi-shallow area near the edge, allowing it to creep along the surface and edges of the water. In dirted ponds, plant it near the shallow edges.

Pond Potting Instructions:

  1. Line a plastic mesh pond pot with high-flow weed matting.
  2. Fill the pot with Daltons Aquatic Mix.
  3. Cap with fine washed pebble to prevent the mix from escaping.
  4. Remove the bottom 3 cm of leaves from the stems.
  5. Plant the stems 1-3 inches apart.
  6. Slowly lower the pot into the pond to avoid disturbance.

Additional Information:

  • This plant is great for adding color and texture to both aquariums and ponds.
  • It provides excellent cover and habitat for small aquatic creatures.
  • The plant's vibrant coloration and rapid growth enhance the aesthetic appeal of any aquatic setup.
