When people first see this plant, often they think it is like any other stem plant and should be planted in the gravel. While it looks like any other bunched stem plant, it is actually a true floating plant that never grows roots. The stems branch profusely with thick clusters of needle-brush like leaves. It is often used in breeder aquariums because it offers excellent cover for fry. You will need to thin out the growth regularly because it will keep growing in layers on top of itself and then the lower layers will start to die off due to lack of light and litter the tank with dead leaves. Studies have also shown that the plant emits a chemical in the water that helps to retard algae growth. The plant is native to North America and tolerant of a wide range of temperatures and water parameters.
