About This Product

 
Bacopa caroliniana has been used as an aquarium plant for many years. Apart from relatively good light it makes few demands. Its slow growth rate makes it one of the few stem plants that do not need much attention. Like most stem plants, it is most decorative when planted in small groups. Easy to propagate by cuttings; take a side shoot and plant it in the bottom.

    Not as easy as I'd hoped

    Posted by Chris on Mar 21st 2021

    First planned tank. These arrived beautiful as well as the other plants but haven't done aswell as the others. After 2 weeks they haven't really grown much and have lost some leaves. The plants are good, i just don't think I'm doing something right. Hopibg they will bounce back becuase I love the way they look

    I received the product the the COPA was wrapped in a very moist towel a couple of times put in a plastic bag and wrapped with shipping paper To keep the contents secure. I would recommend buying from this company!

    Beautiful but struggling

    Posted by Danielle Grass on Aug 31st 2020

    The plants are beautiful but the ice pack I ordered with them was essentially worthless. It’s been so hot here lately that the plants were badly damaged. I had to remove a great amount of dead and decaying leaves and stems that didn’t make it and I’m still having to pick off dying ones. They still haven’t rooted but what’s left of them look better and seem to be recovering. I will order plants from here again but not until the summer is over.

    I ordered a 6 stem bunch. Got one extra. Yey!! Very healthy plant and growing well. Packed neatly with ample hydration. Love it.

    Fast growing with co2

    Posted by Michelle on Apr 17th 2018

    Fast growing plant that pearls easily with co2, downside it sometimes floats out of my substrate from the pearling. Nothing wrong with the plant, just needs something to weigh it down.

    I never know what will grow well. This one did.

    Posted by Amy on Jan 17th 2018

    I?m 2 year newbie to planted tanks. I have decent lighting t5 and a DIY C02 system. I dose seachem flourish and potassium. I have been through many many plants in my 2 years and lost many due to lack of experience this plant is strong and grows well. At the same time I have killed so called easy plants like java moss. You never know what will like your tank it seems. This company gives a healthy big portion to start you off with. The rest is up to you.

    slow growing

    Posted by Brian on Dec 11th 2009

    This plant seems to need something I'm not giving it. All other plants are doing great, the leaves are becoming transparent, it is a slow grower, not rooting well, all other twenty plants I ordered are doing great!!!!

    Fail

    Posted by Tiffany Martin on Nov 14th 2009

    Yet another failure in my brackish tank. It went transparent and limp within 48 hours. Are there any plants listed in the brackish section of this site that WILL survive?
