Heteranthera zosterifolia is an extremely beautiful plant which forms
a lot of side shoots and thus quickly forms a bushy plant group. In strong light
growth is intensive, and the plant must be pruned before it becomes so compact
that no light reaches the lower leaves. Water roots often form on the stem. In
open aquariums it forms small blue flowers if some shoots are allowed to spread
on the surface.
