Cardamine Lyrata (Chinese Ivy ) LIVE AQUARIUM PLANT

Cardamine lyrata is a marsh plant that originates from Asia. It grows in a clover-like pattern to Hydrocotyle. High light and CO2 can keep this plant low growing to create a dense bush of foliage which can have a dramatic appearance in an aquascape.

Natural History:
Cardamine lyrata, known commonly as Japanese cress & Chinese ivy, is a species of aquatic plants in the mustard family. It is native to the marshes of eastern China and Siberia, as well as Korea & Japan. It flowers from May to June in the wild, with seeds ripening through September. The flowers are bisexual and are pollinated by insects but are also self-fertile.

Pro Tips:
These plants look best when planted in groups or clumps instead of individual pieces here and there. It can also be grown floating & acts as excellent coverage for fry, shrimp, or skittish fish. Under warmer waters the leaves are small. Cooler water temperatures result in larger leaves. It is a fast-growing plant which is often used to aid a planted tank during start up (fast uptake of nutrients). It will grow with low or high light.
