Answer: The bacopa genus belongs to the figwort family. Also known as water hyssop, most are small aquatic and subaquatic herbaceous plants. Bacopas are usually planted in bog gardens, shallow-water pools, and aquariums, preferring water temperatures of 60 to 70 degrees F. They produce their flowers above water in mid-summer. For specific cultural information on your species of bacopa, I suggest you contact the store where you purchased it. If the plant you are referring to does not resemble this description, please e-mail us again, preferably with the genus and species information, and I'll do some more research.
