Growth Rate: Fast
Lighting: Medium to Very High
Colour: Light green to yellow to dark orange/red depending on lighting and fertilisers. It has a “sunburnt appearance” as there is varying shades of colour upon each leaf. This plant has been grown emersed (out of water in very high humidity) but will transform into its submersed (in water) form very quickly.
Great for aquariums and ponds. For those of you with ponds: Pot this one and place it in a semi-shallow area near the edge and let it creep along the surface of the water and around the edges. If your pond is dirted then plant near the edge in the shallow areas.
-Pond Potting instructions: Line a plastic mesh pond pot with high-flow weed matting (available at Bunnings in a grey roll), fill with Daltons Aquatic Mix and then cap with a fine washed pebble to stop the aquatic mix from escaping the pot. Remove bottom 3cm or so of leaves from your stems and plant them about 1-3 inches apart. THEN lower the pot into your pond very slowly to avoid making a mess.
