Love the hydrocotyle, do you have to trim it often to keep it as a low-growing plant? I've tried using it as a foreground with sand but eventually it starts growing up so I was wondering how you got it to grow in just the right spots.

Thanks for all comments. I see that everybody likes this plant. I like it too much as well. It's really
stunning, one of my favourites.

Phact i don't have specific trimming periods. I observe this plant often, and trim leaf by leaf to
keep it controlled. Because this variety of hydrocotyle is growing relatively fast and invasive. I didn't
bury the roots into the gravel. I attached them among riccia. You should just keep an eye on them
and trim the leaves which you dont want to let to grow.

Hi,

exbf thank you for your comment. I used a regular paperboard degraded blue to white and i left some space between the aquarium and the bg. You can try to change the angle of the bg in order to find the right light reflection.

This aquascape is finished. Here is the result. I had great time with this aquascape throughout summer. It was really enjoyable. Thanks for all your comments and advices.

Beautiful tank. Loving the HC. How often do you trim it?

I think white background would work better. Excellent tank
