Banana Aquarium Plant | Nymphoides aquatica

Name: Banana Plant
Latin Name: Nymphoides aquatica
Category: Rosette Plants
Temperature:  20 - 27 Celsius
PH:  6.0 - 7.2
Lighting:  Low-Medium
Difficulty: Easy
Position in Aquascape:  Foreground or Midground

This is probably one of my favorite plants to look at because it is so different from others. It's not really easy to fit into the typical aquascape but you can combine it with Java Moss and have it in the midground or foreground. And obviously, it should be planted "floating" like the one on the picture in order to appreciate the banana like body. They're relatively easy to maintain so its recommended to beginners and experts alike.
