Hydrocotyle Verticillata (New!)
Quantity Available: 2
This species can be floated in aquariums and is an excellent choice for wet terrariums, paludariums, ripariums, and mini ponds where its leaves can grow at or above the waters surface. It is also very easy when grown as a houseplant in saturated soil.
When grown fully underwater this plant is more difficult and will benefit from injected CO2 and high light. If you can master this plant submerged it has a very unique appearance resembling umbrellas or mushrooms.
Our Hydrocotyle Verticillata is grown in house!
