Lysimachia nummularia 'Aurea' - Golden Creeping Jenny:

Key Characteristics:

  1. Coloration: Bright yellowish-green color.
  2. Leaf Shape: Round, ovate leaves.
  3. Recommended Tank Type: Particularly suited for cold water tanks.
  4. Other Names: Also known as Golden Creeping Jenny or Moneywort.

Cultivation and Care:

  1. Growth Rate: Relatively fast grower and quite undemanding.
  2. Water Parameters: Does well in soft to hard water, pH values of 6 to 8, and temperatures of 15 to 26 °C.
  3. Lighting: Good lighting is recommended for the best coloration. Prefers stronger light but can tolerate lower light conditions.
  4. CO2 and Nutrients: Can grow without CO2 injection but prefers it. An ample supply of nitrate and micronutrients is recommendable for robust, healthy leaves.
  5. Indicator Plant: Acts as an indicator plant, requiring sufficient nitrate (>5 mg/l) for robust and intensely colored leaves.
  6. Vertical Growth: Has a rather vertical growth habit, not growing too bushy to the sides, and tends to grow emersed when reaching the water surface.
  7. Propagation: Easily propagated by cutting off the top or lateral shoots, which can be planted in the substrate after trimming.
  8. Root Development: Forms roots on its nodes, aiding in propagation and stability.

Aquascape Usage:

  1. Placement: Best presented in the middle- or background of an aquarium layout.
  2. Color Enrichment: Light green to golden color enriches aquarium designs, making it a valuable addition.
  3. Aquascape Styles: Especially suitable for Dutch-style tanks due to its leaf structure and beautiful color.

Care Tips:

  1. Light Adjustment: While it can tolerate lower light, providing good lighting enhances the plant's coloration.
  2. CO2 Consideration: CO2 supplementation is beneficial for optimal growth, but the plant can thrive without it.
  3. Nutrient Supply: Regular nutrient supply, especially nitrate and micronutrients, ensures robust and healthy leaf development.

Lysimachia nummularia 'Aurea' is not only a vibrant addition to aquariums but also a versatile plant that can be enjoyed in both aquatic and garden settings. Its ease of care, adaptability to various water conditions, and stunning color make it a popular choice for aquascaping, particularly in Dutch-style tanks.
