Golden Pennywort is a very hardy stem plant that has golden-green leaves and is perfect for low-tech setups!

Lysimachia nummularia can thrive in low-tech setups as long as it has moderate to (preferably) high lighting. As it matures, it can grow to an impressive height that is very suitable for the background of the aquarium. There are many variants of this species, and the golden/aura variant is known for its vibrant colouration. While Lysimachia nummularia naturally grows emersed, it is very adaptable to long-term submersed conditions. In addition to being an excellent aquarium plant, it is also ideal for paludariums and terrariums.

Lysimachia nummularia is an easy plant to maintain. It does not require CO2 supplementation, though it will certainly benefit from it. It will look its best under moderate to high lighting and will be sturdiest under high lighting. Due to the thin texture of its leaves, Lysimachia nummularia is not suitable for aquariums with destructive animals such as crayfish, large cichlids, or goldfish.
