Cabomba Caroliniana

Cabomba is a lovely plant native to warmer parts of the Americas. It is a very popular aquatic plant and has been used in aquariums for decades. It has beautiful feathery green leaves, which are divided into narrow segments. It is a densely growing plant that makes for a great-looking background in a planted aquarium. It can also be planted closer to the front of the tank and easily trimmed as needed. The plant looks its best if stems are planted individually in groups.

Caring for Cabomba

The plant likes good lighting and clean water which will help to keep its feathery leaves clean of debris. Under good growing conditions, this plant will show a range of colors from silvery green to green to even brownish-red. It is an easy plant to care for and grow if provided with adequate care. 

  • Minimum Lighting Required: Medium
  • Temperature Range:  72-82° F
  • Tank Placement: Midground-Background

    Out of the plants I purchased this one came looking the worst. Ended up trimming off quite a bit of brown. But I still think it will bounce back. Overall I am very happy with my purchase

    I love all the plants I’ve purchased from this site, I say 4 stars only because this particular one was so fragile I spent a ton of time just trying to plant it properly!

    The bunch arrived quickly and nicely wrapped. The plants adjusted quickly to my tank and i only found 2 baby snails out of the whole bunch.
