In 1985, this reddish-brown form of Cabomba palaeformis was found in Laguna Noh lake (Chiapas, Mexiko) by Christel Kasselmann. It is only rarely cultivated, as it seems, however, it is a quite undemanding plant, just like C. palaeformis 'green'. In contrast to most other Cabomba species it is especially suitable for moderately hard to hard water.
