In the wild Gymnocoronis spilanthoides is generally found as a marsh
plant, but it is very suitable for aquariums. It grows fast and makes few
demands, but it does require a lot of light. With its light-green foliage, a
group of G. spilanthoides forms a good contrast to the other aquarium
plants. The high growth rate can help prevent algae because the plant absorbs a
great number of nutrients from the water. Easy to propagate by side shoots or
cuttings, which should be cut off and planted in the bottom.
