Bacopa australis was discovered in southern Brazil (australis = southern), and it does not come from Australia, as might otherwise be assumed from its name. Stems become 10-30 cm tall and 2-4 cm wide. Like the other Bacopa species, Bacopa australis is also easy to grow in an aquarium. Under certain conditions it creeps across the bottom to form an elegantly decorative light green cushion. When Bacopa australis grows in a good light, the leaves become reddish. It is easily propagated by taking side shoots and planting them in the substrate.

I received this plant in food condition and it is nice but quickly found this plant deteriorated as I don't have strong enough lighting, I use a beamswork evo18, 3x10 watt 1850 lumens, this plant requires high lighting probably about 4000 lumens minimum.

Ask a question about this product
Hi; Our bacopa australis is growing nice and fast. As it grows vertically, new root formation occurs on the body. Do we need to force/plant these roots back to the substrate? thanks


you don't have to but you can try and keep it low by pushing the plants back into the substrate

Are these plants suitable for marine tanks.
