Part Number:moneywort
Moneywort, also known as Bacopa monnieri, is an excellent plant for aquarists who are new to keeping live plants. The leaves are elliptic and grow alternately along the stem. They are bright green, almost lime colored when hit by the light and make an attractive addition to any aquarium.

Moneywort is a moderately hardy stem plant that will thrive in most aquariums. It will typically grow to 12" tall but may grow even taller under high light conditions, even continuing to grow horizontally until it reaches the water's surface. If left untrimmed, it will extend its branches out of the water.

Planting Instructions

Stem plants are usually cuttings of plants that generally 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.

Fast Grower
I really liked this plant in my low light setup. It grows fast and worked really well at bringing down my Nitrates. Highly recommended for easy low light tanks.

Cool contrast plant
Really nice plants for a textural and structural interest in the tank. I ordered a couple bunches of these lovelies and divided them between a couple of my tanks. They really didn't like being in my 60 gallon, their leave grew tiny and they stalled. No fault of PAC, the plants just weren't happy there. In my 29,10, and 5.5 they thrive! So cool looking with that strong vertical stem, but still and all those whorls of symmetrically placed lime green horizontal leaves. Eye-catching as a dense stand and contrasts beautifully with dark driftwood and anubias.
