Common name: Yellow cabomba, Giant cabomba
Origin: Central America
This attractive plant produces many fine, feathery leaves.
The yellow-green coloration is unusual and makes for an interesting ornamental plant. Due to the very fine nature of the leaves, it is vital that the water is clean and free from floating debris, and that algae is not allowed to form on the plant. Strong lighting is required to keep it looking healthy and compact. Stems should be planted in small groups in open areas, and at least 2-2.4 in (5-6 cm) apart, so that light can reach the lower leaves. The plant prefers water with a low pH (6-7).
