Undemanding plant that is great for beginners. A very slow growing plant. Under high light this plant can pearl and will bloom with constant fertilization dosing; and can produce a new leaf every 10 to 14 days. Under lower light, plant may only produce a new leaf each month.

Due to their slow growth, plants are very prone to algae. My plants have the most trouble with Green Spot Algae and Black Beard Algae.

Fish tend to leave this plant alone. Can be grown with goldfish or cichlids. The more voracious plant eaters, such as Silver Dollars, are known to eat the plants.
