Anacharis Elodea is a super hardy plant that I should have been carrying a long time ago. I'm all about beginners and this is about as beginner of a plant as you can get. Elodea (or Anacharis) is commonly used in ponds as well as aquariums. What I really like about Anacharis Elodea is how you can just break off a piece of it and shove it down in your substrate and grow a whole new plant.
You have to love any plant that can handle that. Anacharis also is a great "filtering" plant. It can easily absorb excess nutrients in your tank. (That doesn't mean skip your water changes people) Anacharis has thick, sometimes bright green leaves (dependant on the light it is under) and is great for oxygen exchange. Here is a link to an old school Species Sunday video I did about Elodea/ Anacharis.
Another "filtering plant you might look into is Hornwort! This plant is great for any invertebrates.
Care Scale of 1-10 ( 1 it can grow in your toilet- 10 being nearly impossible)
Anacharis Elodea is a 1--- Almost a .5 :)
Can handle super low lighting, grows faster in higher light
Where to plant:
Get Elodea it while you can.
NOT Legal in Washington, Maine and several other states because of it's invasive nature. (We will just refund you if it is not available in your location :)
This plant is insane! I received a HUGE portion. I even threw some into my HOB filter and it's growing... Like he said this will even probably grow in the toilet.
Great plants. Way to go Dustin.
There were more plants than I was expecting, which was awesome. I've bought plants from Dustin's in the past and I look forward to buying from him in the future.
Very nice plants!
