This easy to grow aquarium plant with umbrella like leaves is actually edible and tastes a bit like carrot (try a leaf when you buy one!). It's low maintenance plant but if you provide it with really bright light, it can grow quickly and creep along the foreground.

You might even find it growing in areas in the UK and it's happy by a pond and of course your aquarium. Suitable in cold and warm waters, it's great for beginners who want an easy to grow plant that isn't too challenging.

Yeah, we like these, so far they are goldfish and weather loach proof, which is nice. The two plants we got were so healthy they had sprouted through the sides of the pots.

?ordered 10 of this HYDROCOTYLE VULGARIS (MARSH PENNYWORT) and got it few days later in post. I was so excited when I got the package. However when I opened the package I was in great disappointment as half of the plants were in very bad condition. There were only few leaves on the plants and the leaves were even yellow in colour. The plants does not look healthy at all, although I was being told that they are an easy grow plants and they will grow back into shape again.

Great little plant had been looking for a while for live plants, aqua essentials certainly did not disappoint

Bought a similar hydrocotyle a while ago and growing well. Decided to try Vulgaris to compare. Growing well and when I have enough I'll try it emersed. Good plant to just let grow and fill space, perhaps in a fry tank.
