Aquarium plant from tissue culture in closed cup.

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 2-5 cm long and 0,1-0,3 cm 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.
