Water Cabbage is an undemanding plant that prefers lower temperatures with moderate lighting and a nutrient-rich substrate. It is a small, rosette plant with interesting leaves which can vary in shape and size depending on growing conditions.
Like many other stem plants, this plant can grow both emersed and submerged. It is a fast grower and can require frequent trimming when kept under high light with Co2 and the addition of fertilizers. Like most stem plants, propagation can be done simply by cutting along the stem and replanting the cuttings.
