Proserpinaca Palustris is a beautiful stem plant that will add great contrast to your aquarium. Cultivated above water and delivered with saw-toothed leaves, which after a transitional period in the aquarium develop into long, fine, needle-like leaves. In good light conditions, it turns a beautiful copper color, and its characteristic appearance is a pleasing contrast to the other plants. In the USA, the plant is commonly known as "mermaid weed''.

Plant weight included in each bunch.
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.
