Description

Long known in the aquarium hobby, this stem plant from the southeastern U.S. is quite undemanding and has a rather slow growth rate.

Bacopa caroliniana has been around in the hobby for many years. Its origins lie in the southeast of the USA, where it is found in marshes, submersed as well as emersed. Several forms of this species are in cultivation, among others a smaller-leaved form and a variegated form. The latter is not too different from the standard form, though. One of the most striking characteristics of this plant is the lemon scent the leaves emit when crushed. The basis of the ovate leaves encloses the stem entirely.

This stem plant doesn't grow very fast, but needs lots and lots of light, at least 0.5 watts per litre. It grows slightly better when fertilised with micro and macronutrients, this is relatively unimportant, though, as well as a fertilisation with CO2. (read more)

As with all Tropica plants shiped from Aquasabi, the quality is really good. As for how the plant looks in the aquarium, it needs a little more time to grow in.

Smells like lemon when emersed. The leaves are quite big and as a stem plant it grows super fast. Out of the box the plant was already huge (30 cm) and the portion was very big. (read more)
