A large leaved aquarium plant with attractive dark green leaves and small sturdy stems. A really easy to keep aquatic plant that asks very little of its water parameters. Best to plant on a rock or stone where the roots trail and it reproduces easily.

Severums and other fish that often eat softer plants seem to dislike this particular plant.


  • Preferred water temperature is 22-28 ºC
  • Ideal water chemistry is pH 6-8.4.
  • Can be kept in a low to high light environment.
  • Suitable in both CO2 and non CO2 tanks.
  • Midground plant

Plants arrived very well packaged, the size is as stated if not a little larger. The quality of the plants is excellent. I buy XL plants as I have several large Clown loach and small plant don't last through the first day, and a week on and the plants are doing fine. Thinking of adding a Pteropus large or maybe a trident or two. Very happy so far.

Plant in excellent condition

by Peter R.
Not the best specimen I've had unfortunately. The plant arrived with quite a few already dying off large leaves and was smaller than other XL specimens I have purchased in the past. Luckily plants grow, but still a little disappointed. Otherwise I'd highly recommend Aqua Essentials as a reliable and trustworthy vendor.

Fantastic plant. Lovely size and vibrant green colour with loads of roots bargain for the price. Arrived well packed will definitely use this company again.

How tall are these plants?


At the moment about 30cm

could I add these into a garden pond


I wouldn't recommend it for a garden pond. It would need to be warmer.

Hi there, how would this fare in a discus tank with 29.5 degrees temp? Cheers


Temperature not an issue - just keep light levels low
