Heteranthera zosterifolia was commonly known as Stargrass. It originated from South America. It's a very beautiful aquarium plant. Under strong lights, it grows fast and needs frequent trimming to ensure that the lower leaves are still reached by the light. Star grass often throws water roots on the stems. On shoots floating on the water surface, small blue flowers will grow above the waterline.

      Hoping it lives

      I purchased several plants and the stargrass was already melting at the bottom of the stems. All the other plants look fantastic! Hoping some of it survives, it's very pretty.

      I have been ordering plants from aquarium plants factory for the last 2 years and have yet to be disappointed except for this past order it came in a little wilted and damaged I do expect a recovery, it’s partially my fault as I ordered on a Thursday before the 4th of July weekend and it took a week before it was delivered. Next time I’ll wait until Sunday to place my order and I would also suggest to plants factory to maybe hold off on weekend shipping and only ship early in the week.

      Only plant I got that grew

      Only plant out of the 5 I got that propagated and rooted

      Great plants!

      The plants were great and came with the additional benefits of weights to help hold the plants down in the substrate.

      Beautiful, healthy plant.

      Did the buy 2, get 1 free. Was given many, many plants. I am wary about this particular deal on here because this bunch I received had many plants, but they were the third of the size as another plant order where I ordered only 1 of that plant (example: was this star grass cut into 3rd's and then separated to showcase the 'buy 2 get 1 free' deal?)

      Regardless, this star grass came very healthy, as shown in the 2nd photo. It seems like an emersed/terrestrial form from my research.

      Improving each day

      The leaves on my stargrass were very large and not quite like pictures, however after inquiring about that, I was told that the new growth would be smaller. So far the new growth is beautiful and bright green and smaller. I'm staying positive that it will start filling in my tank.
