Plant Profile: Hemianthus Callitrichoides

This month I’ve been asked to write a quick species profile for one of my favorite aquatic plants, Hemianthus callitrichoides. The smallest known aquatic stem plant, HC is known for it’s lush, compact growth and is often used to carpet the foreground of high light planted tanks. I love growing HC emersed along the waterline where it spreads rapidly.
