Moneywort - Bacopa monnieri
Moneywort (Bacopa monnieri) is a fairly undemanding plant that can tolerate a wide range of light and hardness conditions. It can grow tall as a background plant or be pruned for a foreground or midground plant; cuttings can be replanted and will continue to grow. It has small rounded green leaves from a thin green stem.
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.

Over a dozen plants came, all green and healthy. Amazing purchase.

After some inventory adjustments my order was processed and shipped. The order arrived on the date promised. I found my plants in good order. I was surprised to find the bundles larger then I expected. The plants were healthy and green. After being in the tank for two weeks now they are still looking good and seem to have adjusted well.
<br>I will definitely consider future plant purchases from The Fish Place.
