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 :)

Nice plants

I received a generous amount and they are doing well


Cant understand that two plants that I have ordered several times wilt and melt with no new growth appearing from new roots or for that matter any root growth?
