This plant will send out runners from the mother plant forming a rich green carpet over the substrate. It can spread quite quickly if given the right conditions and may need trimming back after a while. To provide quicker coverage in the aquarium, individual stems can be broken away from the mother plant and planted individually making sure that each stem has some root growth on it. Secure the stem into the substrate making sure that all of the roots are covered and that the stem is protected.
