Common name

Marsh pennywort


Growing Conditions

Herbaceous plant, creeping habit. Very cool looking plant and easy to grow. This plant is often mis-sold as Gotu kola (Centella asiatica). It is edible but not medicinal. Can be a little prone to green fly - check the under side of leaves occasionally. If you find any, use a bit of liquid soap in water in a hand sprayer and mist. 



Water well and regularly during its growing period



Bright but indirect light is best, can cope with a bit of shade but the plant won’t grow as well



Not fussy

Hydrocotyle vulgaris
