Description

Giant Cardamine, also called Brazilian Pennywort, grows well very well submerged and loves temperatures between 18-24C. Hydrocotyle Leucocephala thrives in tanks with medium to high lighting and does not require CO2. Hydrocotyle Leucocephala looks stunning when intertwined with driftwood. Its leaves, which create a floating-island effect are a favourite climbing place for shrimps. Hydrocotyle Leucocephala grows well in tanks with Anubias as the two kinds of aquarium plants require similar conditions.
