Bacopa Amplexicaulis, also known as Bacopa Caroliniana and Water Hyssop, is a well-known aquatic plant choice in the planted aquarium tank hobby. This particular species is safely one of the most popular aquarium plants for beginner hobbyists due to its hardy and easy care. Bacopa Amplexicaulis is larger in size when compared to its equally popular counterpart, Bacopa Monnieri, and requires similar care. Bacopa Amplexicaulis can thrive in many planted aquarium conditions and will do fine in low-light, no CO2 environments. This aquatic stem plant features thick stems and soft bright green leaves. It does have the potential to grow out of the water and will occasionally sprout small purplish-blue flowers above the water's surface. 

When provided with high light, Bacopa Amplexicaulis also has the potential to produce slightly reddish tones. It has the ability to also grow in bog-like conditions as well as brackish conditions. Like all aquatic stem plants, Bacopa Amplexicaulis can be propagated by cutting the stem and replanting it into quality aquarium soil.
