As a submersed plant, this species is a little difficult to manage for a lazy aquarist like me. It does not want to remain on the substrate, but rather would prefer to act like a vine, growing through hardscape and other plants. But it is very easy!
My favorite way to grow it is as a small floating mat attached to some emersed driftwood. It stays more compact and gives a very interesting appearance at the surface. It absolutely loves paludariums, where it out-grows everything else, and can be used on wabi-kusa.
