It can tolerate a wide range of lighting conditions, from low to high, making it suitable for different setups.
The plant's leaves are green, narrow, and often exhibit wavy or ruffled edges.
Provide moderate to high lighting to promote compact growth and prevent elongation of the leaves.
Supplement with root tabs or nutrient-rich substrates to provide essential nutrients for healthy growth.

Avoid sudden changes in lighting or water parameters, as it can cause stress and hinder the plant's growth.
Do not overcrowd the plant, as it requires space to spread and form a carpet.
Avoid excessive pruning, as it can slow down the plant's growth and disrupt the carpeting effect.
