Heteranthera zosterifolia from South America is an extremely beautiful plant which forms a lot of side shoots and thus quickly forms a bushy plant group. Stems can become 30-50 cm tall and 6-12 cm wide. In strong light growth is intensive, and the plant must be pruned before it becomes so compact that no light reaches the lower leaves. Water roots often form on the stem. In open aquariums it forms small blue flowers if some shoots are allowed to spread on the surface.

Growth:   Fast
Height:  30-50cm
Width:   10-15cm
Light demands:  0.25 Watt per liter
CO2 demands:   3-5 mg per liter

What a great growing plant fairly fast growing and lovely looking, ignore or remove black leaves bit confusing when you first get it from the packet but once it was planted it took off.

WoW!!!! This plant grows quick! It said on the pot it would grow 30cm in 30 days and they weren't lying! I can't not believe the growth especially as there have been filtration and heating problems during the week it has been in, but it has taken these problems in its stride. It is going to prove to be an excellent hidy hole for shy, retiring aquarium in habitants.

I have been plagued with snails when buying plants from other suppliers so it is nice to have some that are snail free and very healthy. I will watch the plants grow with great pleasure knowing that they won't be eaten from the bottom up.
