Bacopa amplexicaulis (sometimes called Bacopa caroliniana) is a charming aquatic plant with neat and compact stems and leaves. An attractive shade of green that will bring radiance and vibrancy to your aquarium. Very easy to grow and easy to take cuttings from.

The colour of the leaves totally depends on how much light you offer this plant. Under really high lighting the leaves can turn a shade of bronze (very nice!) or even red. This plant can even grow in brackish conditions making it super versatile.

It's a lovely plant and I hoped it would suit my aquaria conditions. However, most of its leaves have now come off, leaving just long stems. I wrongly thought it was the Swamp Plant when I reviewed that - apologies! I was disappointed the Bacopa hasn't thrived, but may try again.

Great quality and price as always and very well packaged. Definitely recommend . ????

Lovely fresh & healthy plant, my fish absolutely love them. I have bought a few plants now from Aqua Essentials, they always arrive quickly, well packaged & most importantly, healthy. I have planted both my tanks now with their plants & they look beautiful, all have survived & are thriving.(no sign of snails either) Whilst some may think that these plants are slightly more pricey, I think it's worth paying a little extra for peace of mind knowing you're getting quality products. Keep up the good work Aqua Essentials, I most definitely would recommend this company.


Thanks Kirsty and we appreciate your custom.

These really are giant plants! They are loving their new home, putting on new growth and generally filling up the available space! Very pleased with them, and I think the fishes like swimming in/out of them too! Yes, I would buy these again!

Always remove from pots and split up into 5/6 plants

This plant is suitable for brackish waters but not marine.

Will this be ok in sand


Yes it will be fine as long as you add some terratabs

Will plecs eat these? And will they grow in low light?


No idea with pleco 

generally an easy to grow plant

Do you have to separate from the yellow stuff in the pot or put them in with this still around them ? Do the fish tent to eat this plant as mine seem to be more stems now then leaves.


Yes remove rockwool
