Overview- The beautiful and striking yellow and red tips of Bacopa caroliniana give it its peculiar name, Bacopa Yellow Flame. The plant is a result of selective crossing that results in such a pretty leaved aquatic plant, suitable for growing in aquariums. Bacopa is not a fast-growing plant, which makes its stem thicker than that of other stem plants. Additionally, the leaves have a rubbery texture, making it a hardy aquarium plant. Its care level is easy, and it is perfect as a midground or foreground plant.
Advantages- The tissue culture variant of Bacopa Yellow Flame is developed in in-vitro conditions, making it free from pests and other microorganisms that can create havoc in an already established tank. Therefore, having a tissue culture variant of Bacopa Yellow Flame is the right choice for experts as well as beginners.
Care- The plant requires a temperature between 20°-28°C. It is advised to prune Bacopa Yellow Flame regularly to maintain a bushy appearance and prevent excessive vertical growth.
Light requirements- It grows well under medium to bright light conditions. Such lighting will help the leaves to form a bright yellow color. Low light conditions will fade the vibrant, bright yellow coloration.
pH requirement- The pH requirement of Bacopa Yellow Flame is 6 to 8.
Other requirements- The plant doesn’t require additional carbon dioxide; however, adding it will only help the plant to grow well. At the same time, a nutrient-rich substrate will ensure profuse growth and development of Bacopa Yellow Flame.
