Bacopa caroliniana 'Yellow flame'
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

Care Scale of 1-10: ( 1- it can grow in your toilet- 10 being nearly impossible)
Bacopa Yellow FLAME is a 2. (It takes a second to reestablish because of it's thicker stem)
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
These arrived in really good shape. Healthy. They didn’t have the reddish tips so I’m guessing that grows later? They are still beautiful and add a different shape to my arrangement.
I think this plant may be one of my favorites that I ordered other than the anubias which was also excellent. I love the shape of the sturdy small leaves. And while the color isn't as yellow as I expected, more green with a tinge of color, I don't regret buying this one at all. I think it is a lovely shape, the portion was great. It's so clean, no algae on it and each leaf is perfect. Im excited to see if I can bring out more yellow in it by blasting it with extra light as Dustin suggests in his info on the plant ♡
Super vibrant and healthy. Excellent contrast with the darker greens in my tank.
I bought this plant on Monday and received them today. Says the bunch will be 7-9 stems. I got 10 stems. A buck a stem is cheaper than any local place! (Can’t find quality plants near me anyway) Plants came looking great, still pretty green with a little yellow at the top. I have a Fluval Plant 3.0 36 light so I look forward to seeing these plants continue to grow and change. Thanks D!
All stems came in near perfect condition - a testament to both the quality of the product and the packaging/shipping. The plants are gorgeous. The only complaint I have is that, once trimmed to plant, the planted stem becomes too easily dislodged from the substrate bed (Seachem's Flourite Black Sand) as a consequence of side-swiping by fish. I am not sure that there is anything that can be done about that, however, unless I were to get rid of the fish.
