    • Lysimachia nummularia, also known as Creeping Jenny, is a common specimen that can be grown in both immersed and submersed environments. Only moderately tall, this plant is appropriate for midground placement depending on the size and design of your aquascape. Over time, it will take on a lovely bush-like shape with subtly golden leaves. L. nummularia is easily cared for and readily adaptable to most environments, making it especially well-suited to beginner hobbyists. Moderate to high lighting, CO2 supplementation, and nitrate fertilization will all facilitate healthy plant growth. New growth will produce relatively few side shoots, allowing for easy propagation through pruning. Ultimately, this variety is both undemanding and versatile, and makes a great addition to any tank, old or new.
