Common Name: Mermaid Weed

 

Proserpinaca is a stem plant, 10-40 cm tall and 5-10 cm wide. 
Cultivated in closed cups and delivered with saw-toothed leaves, which after a transitional period in the aquarium develop into long, finely denticulated, needle-like leaves.

Proserpinaca palustris varies in form according to its origin. The Tropica cultivar is found on the Isla de la Juventud off Cuba. In the USA the plant is commonly known as "mermaid weed''.

A great contrasting plant in both color and texture for your midground area.
