Details

Cardamine lyrata is actually a marsh plant from Japan. But it is also a familiar aquarium plant which thrives under water with 20-50 cm long stems. A characteristic trailing growth form makes it highly decorative, and ‘aerial’ roots often form on the plant itself. Plant in groups, and make sure the water temperature does not exceed 28 degrees C (this makes the leaves much smaller and the plant more leggy).

Under warmer waters the leaves are small. Cooler water temperatures result in larger leaves. It is a fast growing plant which is often used to aid a planted tank during start up (fast uptake of nutrients). It will grow with low or high light.
