A popular decorative, oxygenating and water filtering plant.
The submerged leaves grow in whorls of 4 to 8, up to 4 cm long and are produced on trailing stems to 2 m or more long. Prefers full sun in deeper water to 1m, but will grow in part-shade in shallow water.
A good habitat plant providing food and shelter for aquatic life.
Occasionally brush leaves gently to remove debris and trim back excess growth.
