Cardamine Japonica Verigated is a bog plant originally distributed in East Asia (China, Japan, Korea, Far Eastern Russia) where it lives in moist places and on rivulets. It is a great plant for cold water tanks as well as tropical tanks that are not kept too warm, which makes it a very popular, easy-to-obtain aquarium plant.
Cardamine Japonica Verigated is a slow-growing creeping stem plant easy in cultivation. Its tendriouls stems carry light green kidney-shaped leaves with verigated white . Under insufficient light (less than 0.5 watts per litre) the stems grow very thin and the leaves stay significantly smaller.
Cardamine Japonica Verigated grows well even without the addition of CO2, however, carbon dioxide fertilisation enhances growth and verigated in the leaves. Leaf size seems to be dependent on temperature. Colder water of around 20 °C furthers the formation of larger leaves, whereas temperatures of around 24 °C and over result in tiny leaves.
Cardamine Japonica Verigated grows like a climbing plant between all its neighbouring plants. On the nodes it grows roots, which are very often hardly visible due to its dense growth. Propagation is very easy - just cut off a part of the stem or a lateral shoot, which you re-plant into the substrate. This cutting throws new roots very quickly and starts growing.
