Egeria najas also known as Anacharis narrow leaf is very similar to the very popular common Anacharis, Egeria densa, but has narrow leaves that sprout from a more delicate thin stalk. The leaves may curl downward slightly at the ends. These plants can be planted in the substrate or can remain floating at the surface.
Just like Common Anacharis it makes an ideal aquatic plant for beginners as it is one of the easier plants to keep. It is a terrific oxygenating plant and will do wonders for the inhabitants of your aquarium by adding oxgen and by using up excess nitrates that could harm your inhabitants.

You are buying 1 bunch, approx. 5 or more stems. Plant weight included with all bunched plants.
Stem plants are usually cuttings of plants that normally don't come with roots. This is how stem plants are sold in the aquatic plant industry although at times my stem plants may come with roots because I have been growing them out. All stem plants come with a plant weight that holds the plant in place and is safe for your tank.
To plant just let the weight lay on your substrate and the stems will grow roots throughout your substrate. You can also plant the tips, about 1/4" in your substrate if you prefer.
