From the point of junction of the leaf and petiole, clear, well visible veins radially diverge. Rhizome marsh has an elongated appearance; the adventitious roots of this plant are well developed. Blooms white flowers with five petals.

The core of the flower is yellowish, and the flower itself is covered with “hairs”. Under favorable conditions content height humboldt swamp may exceed 1 m (with an appropriate water level in aquarium).

AT content humboldt swamp quite a capricious plant that requires a lot of space and therefore only takes root in spacious aquariums. The plant feels comfortable in warm water (in summer up to 30 ° С, in winter not lower than 15 ° С), its hardness does not exceed 6 °, pH up to 8.0.

With sudden changes in temperature, the plant begins to hurt. For optimal growth marshland bright aquarium lighting is required.

Sources of artificial lighting can be fluorescent lamps, the power of which is not less than 0.5 W per liter of water per aquarium, in combination with incandescent bulbs.

Seeds sprout, floating to the surface, then they sink into the ground and take root there.

With the advent of the first leaves, “seedlings” marsh are separated from each other and, with further favorable development, planted in aquarium. Second way breeding marsh flowers consists in the separation of developed verticils with leaves. Separated whorls are planted in the sand in a separate container, which is covered with glass and left in a bright, warm place until the formation of roots.

After that, the plant is planted in common aquarium. Young plants should be protected from algae fouling and eating snails.
