Aquatic Plants
Usually ships in 1-2 business days from our fulfillment center

Hydrocotyle Leucocephala is a unique aquarium plant that offers vine-like growth and floating bright green, lily-like leaves. Relatively undemanding, Hydrocotyle Leucocephala is similar to other Hydrocotyle species but typically tends to be on the larger side making it suitable for larger planted aquarium tanks or pond-style planted setups. This aquatic plant is easy to keep and is a great beginner plant due to its ability to adapt to a wide range of aquarium parameters. CO2 injection is not required but aids immensely in promoting lush, bushy growth. Growth is also quick and trimming will need to be done to keep it maintained. This version offers slightly variegated leaves with random shades of green and cream. To maintain variegation, higher light should be provided. It should be noted that variegated plants may revert!
