Shinnersia rivularis

Synonym: Trichocororiis rivularis

Common name: Mexican oak leaf

Origin: Mexico

The unusual leaf shape - similar to an oak leaf - makes this plant an interesting addition to the aquarium. The leaves are up to 2 in (5 cm) long and a dark green color. In the aquarium the plant may grow rapidly and need regular thinning. Bright lighting will prevent the node distance between the leaves from becoming too large and keeps the plant compact. It will reach the surface and continue to grow under the water. Can be used out of water in a bog aquarium.
