Hydrocotyle Verticillata S cup (5cm)
Hydrocotyle verticillata has creeping growth habit in the aquarium. Unlike other kinds of hydrocotyle, it has eye-catching shield like leaves that looks great as ground covering. That is why some aquascapers are using this plant as carpeting option. To make plant growth compact, strong light is necessary as well as co2 dosing and use of nutrition additives. In lower light conditions, leaves grow larger.
Hydrocotyle verticillata does not have to be rooted. It can be used as floating plant or planted on the roots.
