Description

The Hairy Bacopa is a rather large species from Brazil. There it occurs on wet bottom and in shallow water. Bacopa lanigera resembles Bacopa caroliniana but differs by more roundish leaves and a more conspicuous, dense, white hair cover on the stems. The leaves are about 1,5 to 3 cm long. The nervature is often lighter than the rest of the leaf, forming a weblike pattern. Terrestrial stems grow more or less horizontal. Favourable conditions provided, the plant develops nice, deeply blue-violet flowers in its leaf axils. Crushed leaves have an intense aromatic odour. Submerged stems grow upright and are hairless. The shoots are up to 5 cm wide.

Bacopa lanigera is partly considered as not well suited as aquarium plant. However, according to the "Plantfinder" on the site aquariumplantcentral, it is only moderately difficult, has a medium growth rate and needs intense lighting. Complete nutrient supply, CO2 addition and temperatures above 20 °C are recommendable.
In its emersed (terrestrial) form, the plant grows faster and also needs good lighting and a nutrient-rich bottom.

With its upright submerged shoots and thick stems, this Bacopa has a similar appearance like Bacopa caroliniana and looks best as a group in the midground. It is especially recommendable as a creeping plant in well lit paludariums where it adorns itself with its flowers.

Bacopa lanigera is a Bacopa species from Brazil that looks a lot like B. caroliniana. Its emersed form has a densely hirsute stem, which is also expressed by the species name (lanigera = "carrying wool"). There is contradicting information about its suitability for aquaria.
