Penthorum sedoides

 

Layouts containing this plant

Very dense and compact stem plant from North America.
Low maintenance and easy cultivation. The fresh light green, slightly serrated and dense leaves, combined with plenty of side shoots and an almost creeping growth, make this plant extremely attractive. Very suitable for the middle and front areas of the aquarium.
The plant grows upright and is less compact in case of reduced CO2 and poor light conditions.
