Hydrocotyle Tripartita "Japan", also known as Japanese Pennywort, is characterized by fast, compact growth and small, intense green leaves on vertical stems. The plant is carpet-forming (5-10 cm tall) and its compact growth can be promoted by physically pressing the carpet with your hand when maintaining your aquarium (mechanical retardation). Carpet formation and compact growth do best with good light.
This did come in a 4oz cup, but the plant itself was not 4 oz. Now, I've recovered plants from less, but this is such a small quantity, I fear it will melt away before it has time to adapt to my tank.
This is such a great plant. It is so versatile and delicate looking but very hardy and easy to care for.
None of the leaves showed any signs of melt. I wanted it pretty scattered around my aquarium so I put in the effort to gently separate the plants, which didn't appear to bother them any. The portion was generous, and easily lightly covered half of the bottom of my 20 gallon.
I found them on r/aquaswap and ordered some things I've been wanting: hydrocotyle Japan, corkscrew val, water sprite, and a batch of their fertilizer as well as some snails and shrimp. As someone who ships aquatic plants occasionally, I was impressed with the packing and shipping effort, everything arrived in great shape. Their prices are very reasonable too.
