Anacharis Plant (Egeria Densa) | Set of Two

Anacharis, also known as egeria densa, is a plant native to Argentina, Brazil, and Uruguay. It’s one of the best-known, hardy bunch plants and it can greatly benefit your aquarium This plant has an incredible ability to absorb large amounts of nutrients fast and thereby minimizing algae and bacterial growth.

Anacharis plants will reinvigorate the look and feel of your tank with their small, compact bright green leaves and stems. They are a perfect background plant for any aquarium size. They can grow up to two meters long to fully fill up the back and top of your tank. But you can keep them shorter simply by trimming the tops. Watch them create a canopy and bloom with beautiful white flowers!

Because egeria densa is highly adaptable and fast-growing, it’s one of the easiest plants to keep. It matches its photosynthetic output to available light, so it can thrive in any light conditions. Plant it directly into sand or gravel, or leave it to float.

    Leaf Yellowing— Otherwise Healthy Plant

    Posted by Aria on 19 Apr 2021

    The anarchis was packaged adequately and I received my package in two days. However, most of the leaves were yellowing. This was most likely caused by shipment so MA didn’t do much wrong. Other than that, the bunches were plentiful and my betta loves them!
