Care Instructions:

  • Lighting: Medium to high lighting is recommended to maintain robust growth and vibrant color. While Anacharis can tolerate low light conditions, it thrives best under brighter light.

  • Water Parameters: Anacharis is adaptable to a wide range of water conditions. It prefers temperatures between 60-82°F (15-28°C) and a pH range of 6.0-7.5. Regular water changes and good circulation will help keep the plant healthy.

  • Substrate: Although it can grow in any substrate, nutrient-rich substrates will promote faster and more robust growth. Anacharis can also thrive as a floating plant without any substrate.

  • Fertilization: While not strictly necessary, regular dosing with liquid fertilizers can enhance growth and vitality. Anacharis benefits from additional nutrients in the water column.

  • Propagation: Propagating Anacharis is straightforward. Simply cut a stem section and replant it in the substrate or let it float. The cuttings will quickly develop roots and continue to grow.

Maximum Size: Anacharis can grow up to 24 inches (60 cm) tall, making it suitable for medium to large aquariums. Regular trimming can keep it at a manageable size and encourage bushier growth.
