Home for these fragile aquarium plants is the east coast of North America. This variety of Hemianthus grows on rocky or muddy substrate at the mouths of rivers. Its loosely upright growth and brilliant, light green color are fresh and spring-like. A pair of sharp scissors is all you need for pruning purposes. After pruning, the plants produce a number of new side shoots and the whole stand will appear denser and more compact. Create rich contrasts by combining light green Hemianthus with red-leafed varieties, such as Alternanthera.
