  • Pointy, rigid leaves with round profile
  • Forms runners
  • Very slow grower

This plant is native to Europe, where it grows on the banks and in the shallow areas of very clean waterbodies poor in nutrients and in calcium. It has not been used in aquascaping very often up to now. The growth habit of Littorella uniflora is unique, it has pointy round leaves, is a slow grower and throws runners. Very interesting as group or small lawn in the fore- and middle ground of aquaria, and it needs lots of light. The leaves are quite brittle, you ought to keep this in mind when working in the tank.
