Can anybody tell me anything about this plant? I picked up some tonight, but I can't seem to find hardly any information on it.

I have some. It stays small but grows a bit taller than C. parva. Also it has shorter, more rounder leaves than C. parva. It makes an excellent alternative to C. parva for a low-tech foreground.

Only if you plant a bunch of it. It doesn't spread like dwarf sag or any other weedy carpets. Grows slowly and propagates even slower.

Depends on how many plants you have and how big of an area you want to cover.

I'm using some as the midground in my 5 gallon. I'd say it's about 4-6" tall under medium low light. Really seems to like to spread for me

I've got it in both my 55 & 20L, I really like it. It takes it time to get adjusted when moved but after that mine grows nicely.
