Mayaca (Mayaca fluviatilis) is a good middle and background plant that will grow quickly and provide good nutrient export if kept within the correct parameters. This plant looks best bunched and needs very bright direct light to thrive. Soft and slightly acidic (lower pH) water also helps to keep this plant healthy. Mayaca is considered an invasive plant in some regions and should never be planted into an open system like a pond where it has a chance to enter natural waterways.
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.
