Hydrocotyle tripartita "Japan" is a very beautiful small pennywort, which is very effective in the foreground. The deeply incised leaves of this aquatic plant are somewhat reminiscent of clover, which is why the three-part p ennywort is also listed as a clover leaf.
The long shoots grow along the substrate, which is why Three-Piece Pennywort likes to be used as a ground cover plant in the foreground. The plant pads grow to a height of only 5-10 cm, depending on the light intensity, although they remain lower when there is plenty of light. Especially to grass plants the special leaf shape of the clover contrasts very nicely, a mixed lawn of Hydrocotyle tripartita "Japan" and of grass plants like Lilaeopsis looks extremely natural.
Hydrocotyle tripartita "Japan" grows very fast and the runners soon reach every corner of the aquarium. Here you always have to thin out well and prune nicely the zones where you want the pennywort to grow. The cut off runners can be easily placed in the substrate to propagate the plant, they soon sprout roots and then simply continue to grow in the new location.
The cloverleaf does not necessarily need fertilization with CO2, but a good supply of nutrients is important for the strong grower. Due to its fast growth, Hydrocotyle tripartita "Japan" is a good choice to stand up to algae.
This Hydrocotyle tripartita "Japan" comes from the laboratory, where it was grown as a cell culture. For this reason, all aquarium plants grown inVitro are free from pests and nuisances, algae and pathogens, and they are also not treated with pesticides. Therefore, you can immediately plant the clover leaf, before that you just need to rinse the nutrient substance from the roots.
It is best to divide the clover leaf into small portions for planting. The runners, which soon begin to grow, very quickly close the gaps between the clovers.
