Aquatic Plant Research
Egeria densa is a widely-available invasive plant used in both aquaria and water gardens. It is regulated as prohibited in WI, but fortunately, there are several closely related plants also available in the live plant trade that can be used as alternatives. This document was created to help distinguish between the regulated plant, and two possible alternatives. These documents are useful for stores working to bring their stock into compliance, for aquarists wishing to avoid purchasing regulated plants, and for teachers demonstrating cell properties with live plants.
