Cardamine lyrata is a marsh plant that originates from Asia. æIt grows in a clover-like pattern similar to Hydrocotyle. æHigh light and CO2 can keep this plant low growing to create a dense bush of foliage which can have a dramatic appearance in an aquascape. æThis plant looks best when planted in groups or clumps instead of individual pieces here and there. æIt can also be grown floating and acts as excellent coverage for fry, shrimp or skittish fish.
Propagate by trimming stems and replanting on pulling apart dense clumps and splitting the roots.
Remove tissue culture gel before planting. æSimply wash the gel away or soak the plant in water and squeeze the gel off with your fingers.
