In favourable light and nutrition conditions Samolus valerandi is a
very beautiful foreground plant in the aquarium. It normally grows in marshes,
and often takes time to adapt to life under water and start growing. If light
conditions are good and the bottom is nutritious, the plant will do well. S.
valerandi is also suitable as a pond or terrarium plant, as well as an
indoor plant if placed in a north-facing window.
