Proserpinaca pectinata is a lovely, finely pinnate species of Proserpinaca. Florida Aquatic Nurseries is happy to be able offer this plant, native to the eastern U.S.A., to discerning aquarists. It has a lovely, orangey-bronze color in good light, and is a good grower as long as it has strong light and supplemental CO2. Proserpinaca pectinata has finely pinnate lives even when grown emerged (although they re then green) which makes it a small, interesting alternative for terrariums or Wabi Kusa.
Like P. palustris, it is one of the slower growing stem plants, which is appreciated by those with smaller “high tech” tanks.
