Moneywort (Bacopa Monnieri)

Bacopa, also called Moneywort or water hyssop, is a hugely popular aquarium plant. It is found in many tropical and subtropical areas throughout the world. The plant produces small round and oval leaves that are light green. You can trim Bacopa regularly and keep it short and compact. Or, you can let it grow taller and use it as a background plant.

How to Care for Bacopa Sold in our Store

The plant is easy to grow and care for. It adapts readily to many water conditions. It does not require high light or specialty substrate to thrive. However, Bacopa will grow faster if provided with strong lighting and good substrate. Under good conditions, and if not trimmed, it can even grow out of the tank and flower.

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

Plant stems individually in small groups. The unusually shaped leaves of this plant will provide great visual interest to your aquarium. Your tank inhabitants, fish or shrimp, will also welcomed its addition to their underwater home.

Bacopa is also available potted.

    Got my order today. These were in pretty good condition. Hornwort and water lettuce are wonderful big healthy plants. Let's see if I can keep them alive!

    Arrived kind of sad but perked up.
    Posted by Sharon Layeski on 15 Feb 2022

    These plants looked kind of sickly when they first arrived. Probably from the cold exposure during travel? I put them in my tank and within a day or two they perked right back up again. Disappointed they were not packaged with more protection from the cold.

    Very impressed with quality & quantity, but not the shipping
    Posted by Nicole on 21 Jan 2022

    First time ordering from Modern Aquarium, very impressed with the quality of this Moneywort! It arrived gently rubberbanded into two bunches, as described. Overall, the plants look healthy and are already thriving in my tanks! My only complaint was the shipping - ordered on a Thursday, my order did not go out until Monday, and FedEx delayed it until Thursday evening. DId have to do some trimming of damaged leaves as there was no heat pack in the box (From FL to NY in January) - would be 5 stars if the shipping was more timely and there was more plant protection.

    I got two bunches of moneywort and they arrived healthy and full. They've been in the the tank for a week now -- both planted and floating -- and still look fantastic. Very satisfied with my purchase so far.

    It’s my second order from ModernAquarium and it’s fresh and healthy, it’s hard to believe it was in the mail for some time. Will order again for sure!
