Purple Cabomba, also known as Red Cabomba or Carolina Fanwort, has feathery, green to purple-grey forked leaves, which are divided into narrow segments and offer an interesting texture that will contrast well with other plants and driftwood.

Arrived fast and healthy

I wanted something to replace the hornwort (not purchased at WCA) in my tank since it ripped up my betta's fins. I purchased 1 quantity and received 4 'branches' of cabomba. It had the purple hue as shown in the pic. In the 10 days or so I've had it in the tank 2 branches have had new growth. The top leaves open and close with the day/night cycle so that's cool. It's lost the purple coloring but I'm sure that's because of my tank. I don't have a very robust planting system (no C02, no soil. Fluorescent light and natural light) and am new to tank plants. Neat plant, would recommend!
