The fine, delicate foliage of the Myrio's makes them ideal plants for creating a lush background in the home aquarium. These plants are fast growers, and they provide a secure area for timid species and fry that may be spawned in the aquarium as well. Several species and color varieties are available. High light will help bring out the colors of these plants.

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.
