This plant has creeping rhizome with green-olive, hard leaves. These leaves have pointed tips and they form dense clumps.
This is undemanding species but it grows slowly when it is completely submerged. It is also sensitive to rapid changes of water temperature.
This species should be planted in the foreground or middle of the aquarium in groups or singly.
This is spermatophyte plant. Its flower stalk grows above the water surface. In aquarium we reproduce it vegetatively - by dividing the rhizome.
