This is a very easy plant to grow, and grows very quickly. It pearls before most other plants, and will form nice bushes. It isn't picky about pH, kH, I'm growing it in hard water with a kH of around 8.

Recieved a batch from Eyebeatbadgers. KH-3dH pH 6.5, DIY Co2, 3wpg, pearls fast and beautifully, grows very very very quickly. A very pretty plant indeed, whitish tips, and under certain bulbs puts off a very pretty pinkish tip due to the whiteness. I'm very pleased with this plant, about halfway up to the water line it begins new stems from the node. I recieved this a little bit over a week ago, and it's grown 2-3 inches under low light, just got better lighting 2 days ago and some stems have grown about an inch since.

This is a delicate little plant that grows well in my high tech tank, it is very small so I have planted 6 to 8 stems together with 5 or 6 similar groups planted closely to make a thick stand. This size of this palnt would make it great for nano tanks but it looks great anywhere, Fe does help it green nicely and it would be a background plant in a small tank but mid ground in a larger tank.

The image to the right is actually Egeria densa or "Anacharis"

That guy has never seen anacharis, that is obviously not anacharis because it doesn't have the serrated leaves anacharis has. Mayaca fluviatilis has the straight edged leaves you see in the picture. I guess it's easy to confuse the two if you're ignorant and don't know any better
