Care Tips - Rorippa nasturtium-aquaticum (Water cress) grows along the water surface. Place so that green leaf shoots are on the water surface. Growth should be cut back if it extends the space allotted to it but its vigour will control greenwater and algae. Cutting back after seeding will promote new growth.
Extra info - This plant will go to seed in hot weather and die back but will set so many seeds it will replace itself.
