Product Description

Hydrocotyle leucocephala, also known as Brazilian Ivy or Pennywort, is a very popular and easy to grow aquarium plant.  It has long been common in the hobby and may be obtained from a wide variety of sources.

Hydrocotyle leucocephala isnt at all picky about light or carbon dioxide levels and will do well in tanks where many other species.  Warm temperatures are not a problem, making it suitable for planted discus tanks. Its leaves tend to turn yellow along the edges with insufficient iron, but that is easily remedied with the addition of a micronutrient supplement containing iron. Although it will do well in less than optimal conditions, it absolutely thrives and reaches its highest potential when light, carbon dioxide and nutrients are in abundant supply. Emersed culture is rarely a problem and is very productive.
