Bacopa monnieri, is also known as 'moneywort' among aquarists .B. monnieri is one of the easiest stem plants to grow, as it makes very few demands on the hobbyist other than bright lighting . If lighting is not intense enough, the lower portions of this plant tend to rot. CO2 is beneficial, but not necessary. Although nutrient deficiencies are not readily visible, growth does slow if not enough nutrients are available. In CO2-driven, high-light aquaria, maintaining proper nitrate (5 ppm or more) and phosphate (0.5 ppm or more) will promote faster, more robust growth, as will regularly dosing an iron/micronutrient mix.This undemanding stem plant grows vertically even under very high light conditions. If allowed to grow to the water's surface, it will continue to grow vertically in its emersed form. B. monnieri tends to produce pseudo-runners at the base of the plant, which can either be left in place or clipped off and replanted in the substrate. It also tends to produce side shoots which can be treated like the aforementioned runners.
