Re: Hydrotriche hottoniflora

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.
