Hydrocotyle leucocephala, or Brazilian Pennywort, originates from wetlands and marches in Southern Mexico to Northern Argentina. Named after its penny-shaped leaves, it is widely available throughout the aquarium industry.
The round, dime to half-dollar sized leaves growing alternately along a vine-like creeping stem, makes the Brazilian Pennywort great contrast plant in a live planted aquarium. At each leaf joint the plant sends out small white root shoots, and when the plant reaches the surface of the water it will produce tiny white blossoms.
A rapid grower, Brazilian Pennywort quickly reaches eight inches or more in height. It is one of the easiest aquarium plants to grow and is suitable for many aquarium setups, from fully aquatic to bog settings.
