Hydrocotyle Leucocephala, or commonly referred to as Brazilian Pennywort, originates from Brazil. This aquarium plant has unusually shaped leaves that are usually about 1 to 2 inches in diameter.  It is easy to grow because it adapts well to varied water conditions.  It will grow especially well and fast when provided good or intense lighting.  Because of its fast pace of growth, Pennywort may have to be trimmed regularly to maintain more dense or compact appearance.  If left untrimmed, the plant will quickly reach the surface of the water where the leaves will spread rapidly and provide shading to the fish below.  This plant can be planted in the foreground, midground or can be left floating on the surface of the aquarium water providing shading.

    Beautiful pennywort

    The pennywort looks beautiful both planted in the substrate and a few floating freely. My Betta loves to hide in both.

    I got mine last week, and they looked great and are doing great in my 60 gal. Will be getting more plants for sure.

    I ordered 7 different types of plants and this was the only one I'm not really thrilled with. First, you do get a lot of plant material in the two bunches. However, they are not thick and bunchy like the photo. The stems are so long that they had them folded back against themselves a few times and rubber banded together. When you take off the bands each stem if about 12-16 inches long with a little bits of root at one end and a single but large leaf on the other end. It's kind of cool in the back of my tank where they stand up above my tall driftwood and look like mini lily pads. I have some in the foreground that I'm going to let develop roots and see if I can trim them back low to get a smaller bushy plant. They are growing quite readily though.
