  • Substrate: While Cabomba aquatica does not require a specific substrate, a nutrient-rich substrate will promote more vigorous growth. Ensure that the stems are securely anchored to prevent them from floating.
  • Fertilization: Regular dosing with liquid fertilizers and CO2 supplementation can enhance growth and ensure the plant receives all necessary nutrients.
  • Maintenance: Trim the plant regularly to prevent it from overshadowing other plants and to maintain its bushy appearance. Remove any decaying leaves to keep the plant healthy.
