Some interesting properties about this plant

  1. its very good at absorbing nutrients very quickly good for messy fish but it can clear all the nutrients from slower plants
  2. I can fight off cyanobacteria and algae because it secretes an anti-bacterial and other allopathic substances SEE
  3. This plant can lower PH in hard water environments because it actually uses bicarbonates to increase the electric potential within its 2 cell thick leaves. The top layer becomes alkaline and its lower leaves become more acidic as a result. this plant can absorb calcites SEE
