The appearance of Littorella uniflora makes it an easily recognizable plant in the aquarium.
It grows wild on lakeshores of Europe, North America and South America. Tolerates quite low light intensity, but this will add to the length of leaves.
Each rosette is planted separately with a distance of a few cm. They will readily send out runners. In time a very characteristic carpet of fat and fleshy leaves – each 1-2 inch long and < 0.5 inch wide – will be created. Be careful when maintaining the tank, the leaves are easily damaged.
Littorella uniflora is suitable for terrarium and garden ponds, too.
1 Low: < 6ppm, Medium: 6-14pm, High: 15-25ppm
- Plant in small batches
- Provide water column and/or substrate fertilization
- High CO2 and good quality substrate will result in better yield
- Trim occasionally to boost runner development and prevent root death due to light unavailability in lower parts of the plant.
