Chinese Ivy (Cardamine lyrata) is a marsh plant which thrives under water. A characteristic trailing growth, round foliage and golden green color makes it highly desirable. This plant is also sometimes known as Bitter Cress or Japanese Cress.
Bunched plants are typically sold as cuttings that are bound together with a metal plant weight or rubber bands. These individual stalks can be planted by inserting the end of the stalk into the substrate, either individually or - with some plants - in groupings of several stalks. Most bunch plants do not have roots but may grow roots in time. They can be easily pruned by trimming the stalk at the desired height. The trimmings can then be planted as well if desired. Some bunched plants do not need to be planted and may be allowed to float on the water's surface.
