Common Name: Anacharis, Elodea, Brazillian Waterweed, Large-flowered Waterweed
Egeria Densa, also known as Anacharis, is one of the easiest aquatic plants to keep and highly suitable for beginners thanks to its lack of care requirements. Egeria looks very similar to common waterweed (Elodea canadensis), but with more leafy stems. It can be kept free floating in the aquarium or anchored into the substrate depending on preference. Although it prefers cooler water temperatures, it can survive in warm water as well. If this is your first time trying live plants, we highly recommended it as it's pretty hard to kill.
