Bacopa myriophyloides S cup (5cm)
This Bacopa species ( Scrophulariaceae family), also known as Herpestis myriophylloides, has been commercially available only for a relatively short time.
Bacopa Myriophylloides is a popular species of high stem plant, which is characterized by thin and long leaves. Despite the fine foliage, it's a great choice for creating lush green clusters that resemble a decorative forest.
It is not very demanding plant. Can cope in the aquatic environment and outside water in a place with high humidity. Apart from water, it produces small white flowers. For fast growth requires high light intensity, and soft acidic water. It should also be given carbon dioxide, and nutrients including iron, to promote healthy growth and reduce risk of algae growth.
