Proserpinaca palustris, which is commonly called Mermaid weed in the industry, can be found in nature in both North and South America. Though it has been in the hobby for a long time, the plant has never been very popular among hobbyists – perhaps due to its large size or difficulty in growing it to good form.

Proserpinaca palustris ranges from being greenish to orangey red. It is a stem plant that will grow as tall as large aquariums with a circumference of around 3 to 4 inches at full size. It has distinct serrated leaves that gives the plant leaves an attractive sawtooth look. It can be used as an attractive midground or background bush. Its large size when matured makes it more suitable for larger sized tanks. Its broad canopy means it will shade surrounding areas quite a bit.
