Name: Lysimachia nummularia 'Aurea'
Origin: Domestic Cultivar
Hi, this is a very beautiful plant with its leaves small and rounded in its shape. It makes a very beautiful site especially if you keep small characins !!
I have this plant, I collected it from growing out in a bog and it is a very fast growing plant. I let some float up top for baby guppies to hide and is a very care free plant. It says it needs bright light here, but it seems to do well in almost any condition and I never have given them any fertilizers or anything but still grow fast and well. The stems will poke out of the water and when it grows as a terrestrial plant it has bright yellow flowers and darker foliage. I highly recommend this plant for a fast growing plant.
L. nummularia is a bog plant with green leaves and buttercup yellow flowers. However, L. nummularia 'aurea' has golden foliage but no flowers. A stunning stem plant which develops branches and roots from the leaf nodes, and fast growth. Like many plants it grows in low light, but does better in higher light. The foliage absolutely glows against the green shades of other plants.
Great plant, does awesome. Grows fast and I have to agree with the other posted comments, but I wanted to add that my angels saw these as an all you can eat salad bar.
