Mayaca fluviatilis is a stem plant from South and Central America. The stem is extremely soft and flexible which, in addition to the very narrow, bright green leaves, gives the plant a light and graceful expression. It branches willingly and the rapid growth makes regular pruning necessary.
This plant prefers soft, slightly acidic water, but it also thrives well in medium hard water.

Mayaca fluviatilis is known to get very pale shoots if it lacks iron.
