Proserpinaca Palustris


Out of stock


Proserpinaca Palustris has produced many varieties over the years of its cultivation in many regions. As it grows in many geographic locations, this aquatic stem plant varies from region to region.

This aquatic plant has a typical light green color highlighted with reddish tops. The red pigmentation develops over time when under intense lighting.

What makes the plant stand out apart from its beautiful color are the serrated edges that surround the leaves when under submerged growth. These serrated edges can ward off predators but they are not sharp at all.

Planting Instructions

Stem plants are usually cuttings of plants that generally don’t come with roots. This is how stem plants are sold in the aquatic plant industry, although my stem plants may come with roots at times 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.
