Description: In the 1950s the species was used as a plant for the edges of garden ponds, where its use is described as indestructible and could even be bothersome because of the strong branching of its rhizome. The attractively shaped and well-spaced leaves of this plant make it a good specimen for the midground of the aquarium. The leaves are oval to heart-shaped and a solid green color. The common name refers to the spiked inflorescence of tiny yellowish white flowers, borne on terrestrial plants only, not on submerged specimens. The plant has no special requirements, other than adequate fertilization and good lighting. Transfer cuttings about 20 cm long to the aquarium, where they will root and grow quite well for a few months.
