Bacopa caroliniana 'Yellow flame' (GOLDFISH PROOF!)
Bacopa caroliniana "Yellow Flame" Want a hardy stem plant that will give you a nice contrast to your background, without all of the work of faster stem plants that need trimmed all of the time? Say hello to Bacopa!
This Bacopa caroliniana is call the "Yellow flame" variety as it has been produced through selective crossing to accent the yellow tips. Bacopa isn't your fastest growing plant, but this is because it is thicker than most stem plants. It's leaves almost feel rubbery to the touch.
NOTE: We have now had this plant in stock for over a month. You can see how the tips will give you that Redish- Yellow FLAME look under some decent lights.
In the summer we grow it outside where it gets a pinkish red on its tips. (It will take all of the light you can give it or NOT give it)
NOTE: We have also grown in COLD WATER. (It doesn't grow as quickly but still thrives!)
THIS IS A GREAT BEGINNER PLANT. It will take some time to get established but will make a nice addition to ANY Planted Tank. You are getting a bunch with 7-8 stems in it.
This will be one of your favorite plants!!! TRY IT

Can handle super LOW LIGHT, but won't give you the "Yellow Flame" Tips with higher light. (It will stay more pale green in lower light)
Where to Plant:
Bacopa is a Background Plant.
Come in in a 100F heat wave after a week it started to show some life .
The plants arrived in great shape. I only knocked a star off because I have been spoiled by Dustin's and they weren't as colorful and long as I have come to expect from this great company.
Very cool addition to my tanks. It did take a while to figure out a good way to stick them in the dirt and sand substrate due to their thicker stem size. They don’t have the same colors as in the pictures, but I’m sure they’ll pretty up once established.
Goldfish ate my entire order unfortunately I have 50 gallons and five fish. How is this possible? Two stars for being friendly and I loved the packaging
This little bacopa was a great addition to my tank. It has melted back a little bit but I am confident that once it has settled in, it will start to show off some of that beautiful coloring.
