About Lіttоrеllа Uniflora
Though individual American shoreweed plants are inconspicuous and small, they form dense swards when planted close together. Littorella uniflora aquarium plants are perfect for carpeting, and they produce tiny greenish flowers when the water level is low enough to expose the stems to air. Mature plants resemble thick, round blades of grass, or slender string beans.
To propagate Littorella uniflora aquarium plants, cut the side shoots when the plant grows laterally. Low light conditions result in longer leaves, and higher lighting creates a more uniform, compact look, similar to a lawn.
