Penthorum Sedoides is an interesting plant originating from North America. Penthorum Sedoides, sometimes known as Ditch Stonecrop displays light green, slightly serrated leaves that grow from the main stem. This aquatic plant exhibits very dense and compact growth making it a great choice for aquarium hobbyists who prefer this style of growth in aquatic plants. Penthorum Sedoides is easy to care for and doesn't require too much care as it grows at a slow to moderate pace and can adapt to lower light environments. With higher lighting, Penthorum Sedoides will start creeping growth and is an attractive choice for the midground of planted aquariums.
