Description

Cardamine lyrata is found in the marsh lands of Japan but adapts very well to life under water. In fact it grows very quickly and for this reason, it's popular with hobbyists who want rapid growth in a short period of time (for example in the start up when uptake of nutrients is very important).

It's very simple to grow and it will trail along your substrate. You will need to maintain it, simply trim and re-plant. In cooler temperatures the leaves are large and in warmer water, they become small.

Product arrived well packaged and of a decent size, planted and waiting to see how well it grows on.

My tank is 22L lit by Chihrios A LED. I have planted Japanese cress to have a lowish plant in the center ground. It is more spindly than I expected and grows quickly to the surface. I am not sure that it will make the ground cover but I am cutting and planting the tops. The light coloured leaves are very attractive.
