Description: Despite its appearance, this aquatic plant is not actually a moss. Rather it is considered a liverwort, which will not attach to hardscape (unless tied down) and prefers to be floating, as close to the light as possible. Although this plant can be used in high-tech aquascapes, it is not recommended due to its growth rate. If left in optimal conditions, this plant is very capable of outrunning your regular maintenance routine. It is better suited to low-tech aquariums and is particularly beneficial for young fish and shrimp.
Difficulty: As with all aquarium plants, Co2 injection and appropriate fertilisation is recommended for optimal health and growth. Nonetheless, Riccia can be grown in low-tech environments easily.
Sold as: Loose, handful size.
