Mint Bacopa is one of the most popular, adaptable, and durable aquarium plant species, and we are glad to now offer it as a tissue culture!


Mint Bacopa (Bacopa caroliniana), also known as Lemon Bacopa or Blue Waterhyssop, is an extremely popular aquarium plant due to its bright green coloration, durability, and nearly unrivaled ease of care. It has very few requirements beyond reasonably clean, nutrient-rich water and preferably moderate lighting. It will thrive and grow very quickly even in low-tech setups. It will also grow very well (and even flower) when emersed, so it can also be an excellent paludarium plant.

Care for Mint Bacopa is very simple. It grows quickly when provided with nutrient rich soil and moderate to high lighting. It will grow at a slower pace under low lighting. Like most stem plants, it can be trimmed and cuttings can be replanted. In the case of this prolific plant, regular pruning may be necessary to avoid overgrowth. Like many plants, this plant will respond significantly to CO2, but certainly does not require such supplementation to thrive and grow at a slower pace.   


This listing is for the tissue culture form of Mint Bacopa. Tissue cultures are superior to traditional forms of aquarium plants in many ways. They are produced in a completely sterile environment which eliminates the possibility of them carrying pest snails or algae spores. They have a shelf life (before introduction to the aquarium) of several months if properly maintained and they are housed in a nutrient gel until introduced to the aquarium. To introduce a tissue culture plant to the aquarium, simply rinse off as much nutrient gel as possible, then plant as usual. The nutrient gel will not harm your aquarium.  


What We Like About This Plant:

  • Tissue cultures contain no unwanted pest animals or algae
  • Excellent in low-tech setups and paludariums
  • Prolific and easy to prune

  • pH: 5.0 - 9.0
  • Lighting: Moderate
  • Origin: Lab-grown tissue culture, but indigenous to India and Southeast Asia and grows wild (sometimes invasively) on every other continent except for Antarctica.
  • Aquarium placement: Midground to Background
  • Care: Easy

Shipping Schedule for this service

UPS 1 Day: Monday through Thursday

Current Handling Time:

1-9 business days

Here at Aquatic Arts, we consider the welfare of the live animals we are shipping to be of the foremost importance. This process is much more involved than simply creating a shipping label and affixing it to a box. Depending on the order, it takes from 4 to 7 people to complete this process properly. We check the weather conditions here where they fly out of the Indianapolis UPS facility and the destination for each shipment. We start early each morning and go through a multi-step process to have the day's shipments prepared in time for the UPS pickup. The volume of orders in our system also affects the processing time. Therefore our stated handling time is 1-9 business days. 

Shipping Rate

Pricing is by size of package needed to fill entire order and distance it must travel. It will be calculated at checkout.
