This plant is a selection from Nesaea pedicellata and grows in similar conditions. The main difference between the two plants is the brightly colored golden leaves. These golden leaves are enhanced by a pink central stem that will give any planted aquarium new or old a bright new look. The leaves of this plant will get quite long under ideal conditions, up to three or four inches, and flow gently in the current creating a great visual appeal. You can choose to plant it in mass for a bright golden area or use it as single stems to highlight areas in the aquarium. Whether new to the hobby or one who has seen it all this plant is interesting to all.
