Eusteralis stellata is distinguished by its beautiful shape and
colour. It is difficult to grow in aquariums. It requires intensive light and
the addition of CO2 to grow well. The shortage of micro-nutrients
leads to pale leaves, which may be an indication that the aquarium needs
fertiliser. Even in good conditions growth sometimes stops suddenly. Plants in
aquarium shops are generally low, compact plants grown in marshy conditions, and
do not reveal their full glory until planted in the aquarium.
