*THIS IS ONE STEM FOR $1*
Similar to cabomba caroliniana in its needs and looks. The beautiful purple and red leaves that sprout out leave wonderful color in the tank and the plant will thrive quickly under the right conditions.
On a scale from 1-10. 1 being something you could grow in the toilet and 10 being impossible I give this a 3. Not too difficult, and doesnt require regimented ferts, but requires a decent light!
I placed my first order with Dustin’s fish tanks a few months ago. Browsing around for another plant or two and I realized I never reviewed this plant. Soooo...when I opened my package I found that Dustin had generously thrown in a couple stems of bacomba since it was my first order. This plant has been growing very well since. It’s not a super fast grower which is totally fine by me because I’m using it as more of a foreground plant. The leaves are very wispy and fine. When you first place this plant into your tank you’ll just love the way the leaves spread out. One of the stems was a bit sparse in leaves but is flourishing now. I’m a beginner and have gravel for substrate and no frills lighting and the bacomba is doing perfectly fine. Would definitely recommend this for beginners!!
