Shoreweed, or Littorella uniflora, is a small plant, closely related to the plantains (genus Plantago), which reproduces by runners. In Europe it is native to the shores and shallow-water zones of clear lakes and ponds with sandy ground, whose waters are poor in nutrients and low in calcium.
Littorella is a very slow grower in the aquarium.
