Hydrocotyle Tripartita Japan Carpet Aquarium Plant

Hydrocotyle Tripartita  comes from  South East Asia and Australia. It belongs to Family: Apiaceae

It is one of the smaller varieties of hydrocotyle , thus is suitable for both small and large aquariums .

Hydrocotyle Tripartita Japan is almost recently popularized among the aquarists .

On vertical stems it has small and vivid green  creeping leaves.

It can be planted as carpet plant and middleground plant as well.


Needs frequent trimming because it is rather  invasive plant and if neglected, covers everything. It grows extremely fast and doesn't demand any special conditions.Therefore is perfect plant for beginners.

However if the light is low, it pulls up towards the surface  of the tank.

When light is bright  and the plant is regularly pruned,  leaves spread over the ground and hydrocotyle takes compact form and enriches the aquascape.

Hydrocotyle reproduces by cutting.
