Similar in appearance to Bacopa Caroliniana, B. Salzmannii grows slightly smaller, with leaves displaying deep red central veins and rusty reddish tips fading to green at the stem in ideal conditions. Under low lighting, leaves may remain green.
This is an easy, fast growing stem plant that provides an excellent colour contrast amongst other Bacopa species. It requires moderate lighting and regular fertilisation, with CO2 injection not necessary but beneficial
It is perhaps most similar to the more familiar B. caroliniana, and may be cultivated under the same conditions. Unlike the former plant, it remains a bit smaller and the central vein of each leaf is often distinctly reddish. Under very strong light and with sufficient trace elements, the reddish line may not be as apparent; under low light and with few micronutrients, the entire plant may remain green. The addition of carbon dioxide is certainly helpful, but not required.
Propagation poses no challenges, as side shoots are abundantly formed both after trimming and spontaneously. B. salzmannii makes an ideal plant for emersed culture, especially because of its attractive lilac-colored flowers.
