Part Number:GreenCabomba

Cabomba caroliniana, also known as Carolina Fanwort and Green Cabomba, has feathery, lime-green, forked leaves, which are divided into narrow segments and offer an interesting texture that will contrast well with other plants and driftwood. Green Cabomba is a densely growing plant that makes an excellent, natural background in a planted aquarium.

It is an easy plant that works well for fish fry as it provides terrific cover for them.

This plant works just as well in your pond as it does in your aquarium. An excellent plant for providing oxygen and soaking up extra nitrate that might lead to excessive algae blooms.

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.

Please go here for more information on planting.



Please note this plant can not be sold to the states below due to that state prohibiting them.

Bought a variety of 4 background plants. Have a 75 Gal tank that is taller than it is wide. Plants far exceeded expectations. All were full, healthy plants 8-15 in tall. The Cabomba was about 15 in tall. The obvious benefit in the Oxygen in the bottom. The Cory Cats, all the fish, are much more active . I'll be back!

Beyond Expectations
Green Cabomba arrived lush, green, and healthy. Was skeptical of ordering live plants online, first time with this seller, and I am beyond satisfied. Thanks!

LUSH plant
For being in the mail for a couple days, as well as a hot package due to the weather, this plant arrived in INCREDIBLE shape. Lush, bright green, with a generous portion of stems. I parceled them out into smaller bunches, weighted them, and added them to my shrimp tank. The cherries love them already!
