- Flat, Round Leaf Shape
- Easy to Grow
- Provides Cover For Fish and Fry
Brazilian pennywort is a versatile and unique plant that will draw eyes to any aquarium. It has flat, rounded leaves that almost look like little umbrellas when growing underwater. Over time, it will grow upwards toward the light and will send out light green leaves from its vine-like stems as it grows along.
This plant is easy to care for and does very well in a medium to higher light tank. Once it takes off, Brazilian pennywort will add tons of hiding places for fish and fry with its big leaves and may even grow right out the top of your tank if left untrimmed.
Nice plant and as usual loaded with substantial root system!! Never fails with their plants!
A friend of mine told me about Aquarium Co-op so I gave them a shot even though they are located clear on the other side of the country from me. I was very happy with the speed and quality of the plants I received. I will definitely be a repeat customer.
The penny wort seemed to suffer most in shipping as the leaves were all creased or torn upon arrival BUT it immediate started new growth in our tank and has practically recovered all the way in a matter of 2 weeks. Great purchase! I expect it will be one of the ones we have to clip regularly in no time.
The plant I got I was able to split into 4 different sprigs. Over the course of like maybe a week they all grew to the size of the original plant. This one’s crazy. Grows out of the water, and grows well. It’ll cover your tank. Awesome.
