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.

I buy all my plants from modern aquarium
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
My plants came quickly,well package and in great condition.I will definitely buy more in the future
Plants were huge, healthy, and colorful. Well worth the price!
plentiful bundles, took easily in my tank and my fish love them
Plant looks fantastic only thing is wish they can in a cup like some plants do they keep floating to the top
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!
Very pretty plants. I really liked the color.
Lovely color and most of the 2 bunches survived the shipping and a week in the aquarium, happy to see these guys already perking up
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.
