The Creeping Jenny is an ideal coldwater aquarium because in it’s natural habitat it loves to grow in marshes and ponds! But it will also do great in many other aquarium environments!

The Creeping Jenny adapts very well to most environments and is very easy to care for. It doesn’t grow too tall, only up to 16 inches (40 cm), and is a good foreground or midground plant. It has a moderate growth rate and will grow very well if kept in bright lighting. It is especially suitable for tropical aquariums and also grows well in coldwater environments, but it will adapt to other environments easily. It is easily propagated, simply by planting cuttings from the original plant.
