Growing Information:

1. Lighting: Hydrocotyle verticillata is adaptable to a wide range of lighting conditions, from low to high. It can thrive in lower light setups but will display more compact growth and vibrancy with moderate to high light levels.

7. Propagation: Propagate Water Pennywort through runners and division. As the plant produces runners, they can be allowed to root and then separated for replanting. Division of mature clumps is another method for propagation.

8. Challenges: Considered an easy-to-care-for plant, Hydrocotyle verticillata is suitable for both beginners and experienced aquarists. Its adaptable nature and low maintenance requirements make it a versatile choice.
