What plants can you put in a freshwater aquarium?

    • Marimo Moss Ball.
    • Amazon Sword.
    • Cryptocoryne wendtii.
    • Aponogeton crispus.
    • Bacopa caroliniana.
    • Christmas Moss.
    • Vallisneria.
    • Java Fern.
  • Those are some of the more common species that many can find inside of the big box retailers, but there is actually a HUGE list of aquatic plants (either fully aquatic, or semi-aquatic) that can thrive in various water/lighting conditions.

  • There are quite a few plants that you can use in freshwater that would thrive and would look really nice, it all depends on what you are looking for and how often you would want to change them out or the care you would need to provide for them to thrive.

    Here are a few that I know of that are suitable for freshwater

    Saururus Cernuus (Lizard’s tail)
    Lobelia Cardinalis (Cardinal Plant)
    Heteranthera Zosterifolia
    Limnophila Aquatica
