Common Name: Fanwort, Giant Cabomba
Cabomba Aquatica is one of the most popular types of Cabomba available in the aquarium trade. It is an easy stem plant, suitable for beginners compared to some other harder to keep Cabomba types. It works great as a background or midground coverage when planted in dense clusters and can grow into a thick bush of delicate green leaves.
This plant can be great for beginners because it is hardy and does not require CO2 injection. It does prefer a nutrient-rich environment and clean water. Cabomba requires moderate light or the lower parts of the stems can start to turn yellow and die off. It is propagated through cuttings that easily take root in the substrate. Cabomba can be grown submersed or emersed.
Family Name: Cabombaceae
Origin: South America
Light: Moderate to High
Co2: Not required but recommended

All the plants I received were very healthy and have been growing successfully. I had some difficulty getting the cabomba to root due to the delicate nature of the stems, but received prompt and helpful response from Buceplant when I wrote. I haven't found another source with better prices once figuring in the cost of shipping. I will definitely be making future purchases from these folks.
