Hydrocotyle Leucocephala – submerged – Aquarium Strands

£3.94£19.94

Also known as Brazilian pennywort, is one of the most popular aquarium plants in the hobby. It adds a great pop of green to your tank. Its easy care makes it a great choice for beginners.

Hydrocotyle leucocephala can easily be planted by just sticking the stems into the substrate. It roots very quickly and shouldn’t have too much trouble adapting to most environments. Most aquarists prefer using it as a mid-/background plant (see the video below for an example) but if you don’t mind the light being blocked you can also leave it to float freely. Shy fish like Bettas will love the cover a floating plant provides.

Hydrocotyle leucocephala is a plant that has no issues growing out of the water. This makes it a great choice for terrariums or paludariums or if you just want the interesting look of a plant sticking out of the top of your tank. When grown emersed it will even produce small white flowers.

Plants are incubated in a solution of 0.01% of the insecticide Buprafezin for one hour (Please do not just drop these in a shrimp tank or with any other crustacean). To use these within a tank please wash in water with baking soda under light. These are treated to remove the insecticide but there are cases where this has not been fully removed causing casualties in crustacean. Posting: Monday-Thursday Except Bank Holidays All Plants are posted FIRST CLASS Plants are packed to last 7 days. Supplier of plants: oxygenators, reeds, iris, water lilies, bog gardens, wildlife ponds, natural ponds, lakes, floating plants, deep water plants, marginals, native british and tropical.
