Purple Cabomba (Cabomba pulcherrima)

Post by guppyguy on Mon Mar 17, 2014 6:29 pm

Purple Cabomba is a hardy plant that loved for its pretty purple hues. Cabomba has the ability to thrive in a wide variety of water conditions. The fast growth of Cabomba also helps keep nutrient levels and possible algae blooms under control. Cabomba reproduces via cuttings. This lush plant will make a great backdrop in your aquarium. Several bunches are recommended for initial plantings, with individual plants being grouped closely. A easy plant to grow needing medium to high light.  Cool

In Mexico I have low light but if I let it float, it would thrive for me producing the flowers that guppyguy shows in the second picture.

I tried bringing it in a couple of times with some pond plants but it never survived the trip, mush by the time I got it. Sad
