    Bacopa Lanigera

    Price:  £2.99

    It is an excellent aquarium plant. Despite its slight reluctance to root properly, it is a persistant grower if kept under bright lights and supplied with CO2 and balanced fertiliser. Unlike B. caroliniana, B. lanigera will always stay green, even under very bright light. Stems are hairy even when kept submerged. Lower leaves are shed after a while so it is advised to keep this plant in the mid-ground, where it will harmonize with other green plants. Grows faster than B. monnieri or B. caroliniana. Trimming and replanting regularly is advised to keep this plant looking its best. Since most of its nutrient uptake is through the leaves, regular trimmming is tolerated well.
