Description:

Heteranthera zosterifolia is a versatile aquarium plant native to South America.  Heteranthera zosterifolia can be used as a foreground midground or background plant depending on how much pruning you would like to do.  Under higher light conditions and ample space Heteranthera zosterifolia tends to spread in growth.  Under lower light conditions and densely packed areas Heteranthera will grow upright.
