hydrocotyle tripartite

Is this the small one? Is it hard to grow?

Yes, it is the small one. No, it's very easy to grow.

You may find more information about the plant here under Hydrocotyle tripartita and Hydrocotyle sp. "Japan".

Hi BruceF,

Yes it is the small one; also it is the one occasionally used in some of Amano's aquascapes. No, it is easy to grow.

Thanks for the heads up. Yes that is the one I am looking for. I see Hydrocotyle sibthorpioides offered in a few places but not that one. Sounds like the Hydrocotyle sibthorpioides is harder to grow.

Yes, sibthorpiodes is definitely harder to grow than tripartita. Post a want to buy ad in the For Sale forum. I suspect you'll find lots of people selling it.

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.
