This compact, small-leaved plant will grow in a messy yet attractive fashion, and is best situated to the foreground of the aquarium in front of larger plants. Regular pruning will keep it tidy. The tiny (0.2 in/5 mm) round leaves are numerous and light green in color. Although the plant needs very bright lighting when planted in the substrate, it can also be used as a floating plant and as a bog plant. Apart from good lighting, it has no special requirements.
