This plant is not too difficult to take care of. The stems and leaves of this plant are pretty thick for a stem plant. I have kept this plant in low light conditions and it still continues to grow abeit slowly though.
My experience with this plant is that it will live in low like but doesn't like it, with a high light tank, CO2, and ferts, this palnt will grow tall at a medium pace producing side shoots, it can make a nice grouping or a good screen if planted in small bunches that are close together. it also has no limit to hieght and has grown to 30 inches in my tank but it responds well to trimming and the tops can just get replanted. But it is unusual as it is a slow growing stem plant.
In my medium light, DiY Co2, Flourish Comprehensive, Bacopa was stunted really bad when moving from emmersed to submersed. Leaves were small and darker green when grown emmersed, but the new vegetation after submersed produced larger, fuller leaves that curled upwards. Looks like a crown on top.
This is a tough and hardy plant. I grown this in high light, ferts, no co2, in aquasoil and inert gravel. I've seen some of the leaves became reddish, it changes colour all the time. I'm still trying to grow this emersed, but only a few new leaves came out. Beginners should really try this plant.
This plant is pretty easy to take care of, low light and no fert and it still grew. I had it in my tank for two weeks and new leaves appeared. I'm amaze how easy this plant is compare to other plants that are supposedly easy to grow.
This plant is pretty easy to take care of. I dose root tabs and excel only and I have seen noticeable growth in just about a week. I use it as a foreground cover. They tend to stay in the substrate pretty well since their stems are rather thicker with well developed root systems.
