It is a thick-stemmed, robust plant that grows rapidly in good light.
It looks best planted in a row near the back of the tank growing
straight up before it reaches the water surface. It is sort of like
Ceratophyllum on steroids. The tank should be a large, tall one.
The view of the plant should not be blocked by plants in front of it.
It is pretty easy to grow, but it can deteriorate rapidly in a
neglected tank where the nutrients are not kept up and it is crowded
and shaded by other plants. It does not do well in competition with
other plants for a limited supply of CO2.
