🌱 Egeria/Elodea Densa

The cosmopolitan Egeria/Elodea densa is a good plant for beginners, and its rapid growth helps create a balance in the aquarium from the start. Stems grow fast to 40-100 cm and become 2-4 cm wide. Egeria/Elodea helps prevent algae because it absorbs a great number of nutrients from the water. 

The growth rate depends largely on the amount of light and nutrition available. Growth does not stop in unfavorable conditions, but the plant turns light in color and the tendrils grow thin. 

A bundle of stems or young plants gathered in an anchor. Remove the anchor and split it into separate plants. Regarding stem plants, remove the leaves from the lowest 5 cm (2“). Remove any damaged leaves. Plant the individual plants with some distance into the bottom substrate. Roots will develop soon and the plant start growing.
