Purple / Green Cabomba (Cabomba pulcherrima) - 6+ branches and 6 to 8 inches tall
Purple Cabomba, also known as Red Cabomba or Carolina Fanwort, is a large aquatic plant with tall branches. It is truly unique in appearance with its delicate, feathery leaves that fan out from its branches. It is a wonderful plant for providing cover for fish, shrimp, and other aquatic inhabitants, plus it makes any aquarium more aesthetically pleasing. It's a great plant for beginners because it does not require special equipment, care, or knowledge.
This plant is low-maintenance and can tolerate a wide range of water parameters. However, we recommend a temperature range of 72° to 82° F, a pH of 6.5 to 7.5, and soft water. If you find leaves dropping from your Purple Cabomba, this is likely a sign of poor water quality or a carbon dioxide deficiency.
We ship this plant LARGE - most will have 6 or more branches and will be over 8 inches tall. With proper care and high-intensity lighting, Purple Cabomba can grow to almost 2 feet tall!
