A fairly easy and beautiful plant that will grow in a large cluster, the addition of C02 and nutrients will improve its overall health and looks, but can be grown in a low light setup. Downoi is not always an easy plant for the beginner.
Downoi means little star in Thai.
Light affects size of this plant. In high light co2 enriched conditions it tends to stay small and compact as in the low light no co2 enviroment it grows larger and the leaves grow further apart from each other.
Awesome looking plant. Unfortunately it didn't last a day in my tank. My german blue ram devoured it down to the roots. The only other plant I have that he's attracted to is Lindernia Rotundifolia Variegated. If you have fish that occasionally pick at plants, you may want to skip this one.
