This stem plant doesn't grow very fast, but needs lots and lots of light, at least 0.5 watts per litre. It grows slightly better when fertilised with micro and macronutrients, this is relatively unimportant, though, as well as a fertilisation with CO2. Under intensive light and with low levels of nitrate, this Bacopa assumes a bronze to brownish hue, when the phosphate level is low, it turns slightly pink. 

The stems of B. caroliniana achieve the best effect in an aquascape when planted in a terracing or stepped group in the middle- or (in larger aquaria) the foreground of the tank. This special geometry provides groups of other plants with a resting point to be based on.
