This culture form of the stalk plant Bacopa Monnieri is more compact and, under good light conditions, almost a creeping plant. By pinching off all vertical growing shoots, the plant can maintain a low and close growth, since it willingly creates a large number of side shoots. Further, the plant grows well in the shadow of other plants. Very suitable as a bit higher carpet – or bushy plant in the middle or front of the aquarium. The plant becomes more vertical growing and less compact without CO2 additive and decreased light conditions.

I'm not usually a fan of Bacopa, the appearance usually doesn't do it for me. However, this compact version lives up to its name and stays pretty low. I have it as a midground plant in my tank and it is doing very well, with the addition of root tabs: it doesn't grow straggly and weedy, like the experience I had with the more common version of Bacopa. It's a nice plant and of course was well packaged and healthy when I received it.

As with all the plants here, great value, fast delivery, well packaged. Plants were a good size and very healthy unlike my local fish store. Will be using again and id recommend them highly
