Bacopa caroliniana has been used as an aquarium plant for many years. Apart from relatively good light it makes few demands. Its slow growth rate makes it one of the few stem plants that do not need much attention. Like most stem plants, it is most decorative when planted in small groups. Easy to propagate by cuttings; take a side shoot and plant it in the bottom.
Origin: North America (Country or continent where a plant is the most common. Cultivars arise or are bred in cultivation.)
Growth rate: Slow (Growth rate of the plant compared to other aquatic plants.)
Height: 20 – 30+ (Average height (cm) of the plant after two months in the tank.)
Light demand: Low (The average or medium light demand of an aquarium plant is 0,5 W/L.)
CO2 : Low (A medium need in CO2 is 6-14 mg/L. A high demand in CO2 is approx. 15-25 mg/L.)
