    Anacharis (Egeria densa, also known as Elodea) is a terrific oxygenator and food source in both ponds and aquariums. Its long, green stems are thick with tender leaves and grow not from a root base but from the tips. The strands may reach lengths of 6 feet or more if not pruned. This is an easy plant to care for and is great for beginners.

    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.

    I received the plants in freezing weather and only a 1/4 of one plant froze. The other 4 3/4 plants were prefect. I can't wait till it gets warmer to order more plants and some fish. 5 star treatment ALL the way! Thank you all!!!

    I needed a lot of Anacharis for my pond. The more you purchase the better the price. They arrived quickly and in good shape. I won't bother trying to purchase in local shops again. Good product, price and service. This site is a find!
