A subtle, creeping marsh plant native to Australia, popularised in the 1980s by Takashi Amono. Now a global celebrity, it is frequently used in aquariums in the aquascaping style. Successful cultivation requires very good lighting and a good CO2 supply. The easiest way to bed in the fragile shoots is to use plant tweezers. First divide the potted plant into individual pieces, then plant each of these a few centimetres apart.
