A relatively new variant of the long-known Bacopa monnieri. It grows more compactly and branches more readily than standard B. monnieri, and under lots of light the stems have an almost creeping growth habit. This Bacopa is great as higher-growing carpet plant or as low-growing bush in the middle- and foreground. When the vertical stems are trimmed and under good light, the plant will branch readily and throw many lateral shoots, growing low. It is as undemanding as standard B. monnieri, and it will even grow in the shade thrown by other plants. If light and CO2 supply are reduced it will develop a more vertically-oriented looser growth habit.

I dont know what I was expecting when I read that this plant is 3-10cm tall, but it definitely isnt! Straight out of the package the plant was very big (10-15cm) with a lot of healthy leaves and roots (A+!). In 3 weeks this plant grew up to over 30cm tall! So it is a stem plant, and it will grow way taller than 10cm if you just let it. If you want to make a small bush, be prepared to prune it every 1-2 weeks. Grows 0,5cm per day in my tank (Ferts, medium light, no CO2). Amazing!
