Hydrocotyle Leucocephala originates from the wet marshlands of South America , and also holds the name Brazilian Pennywort.

It grows well very well submerged and loves temperatures to be between 18-24C. A fast growing vine like aquarium plant with kidney shaped leaves, Hydrocotyle Leucocephala survives in tanks where other plants fail!

It thrives in tanks with or without Co2 added and requires only medium light. In high lights it can become rampant, lower lights make it easier to control. Hydrocotyle Leucocephala looks beautiful intertwined with drift wood. Its delicate leaves are a favourite climbing place for shrimps. Hydrocotyle Leucocephala works particulary well in tanks with Anubias as the two kinds of aquarium plants require similar conditions.
