Common Name: Bacopa Araguaia, Purple Bacopa

Bacopa Araguaia is a relative in the Bacopa family. Not as well known as its relative, Bacopa Monnieri, this aquatic plant features similar growth patterns and also has a slight "fuzzy" feel to its leaves. It makes a great back or mid-ground stem plant with pairs of light green leaves sprouting from the base to the tip of the stalk. This aquarium hobby staple adds a cheerful accent to the planted tank and is great for beginners because it is hardy and does not require CO2 injection. It does prefer a nutrient-rich environment and clean water. 

Notes:

  • Bacopa is extremely hardy aquarium plants and is a great beginner choice. However, its leaves are fragile and should be handled with care.
