Marsillea hirsuta is a fascinating plant, usually delivered with
leaves like a four-leaf clover. After a transitional period it develops
different types of leaves, possibly a low form with single leaves like a large
Glossostigma, or alternatively develop two, three or four-lobed leaves varying
in height, depending on the growth conditions. Whichever form the plant adopts,
it forms runners and spreads rapidly round the aquarium. The scientific name for
this unusual aquatic fern has not yet been finally settled.
