Artist's Description

Submerged aquatic plant of cosmopolitan distribution at home in in still or slow-moving water, requiring water temperatures of 15-30 °C during the generative, flowering and fruit-producing stage of its life cycle.

The up to 3 meter or longer stems are rooted typically in nutrient-rich, soft, muddy bottom layers of the ponds, stems, etc. where C. demersum in nature occurs.
The bushy mass of its entangled stems and leaves provides excellent environment for a wide variety of aquatic creatures from unicellular organisms to fishes.

Used in aquaria as a decorative plant providing support for eggs of fishes and protection for the freshly hatched fry.
