Cardamine lyrata is actually a marsh plant. But it is also a familiar
aquarium plant which thrives under water. A characteristic trailing growth form
makes it highly decorative, and ''water roots'' often form on the plant itself.
Plant in groups, and make sure the water temperature does not exceed 28 degrees
for long (this makes the leaves much smaller and the plant more leggy). Also
suitable in garden ponds in the summer.
