Saururus cernuus

Saururus cernuus (family Saururaceae). This amphibious plant does well in the aquarium if it is given good lighting. These plants grow much the same way as the Houttunyia species with underground stems. These stems can be cut up to propagate the plant or tip cuttings can be taken. Saururus flowers easily. The flowers are small and white in a long white plume. These plants grow through the surface of the water easily.
