Bacopa Monnieri is an easy-to-grow semi-aquatic succulent with medicinal and cognitive-enhancing properties. Bacopa is an herb in traditional Ayurvedic medicine with uses that are very similar to gotu kola (centella asiatica). It seems to help protect the cells in the brain, promote bloodflow and enhance the efficiency of the electrical impulses of the brain. This gives bacopa a reputation as a natural nootropic. In fact, bacopa has been compared to piracetam, and it is even used in nootropic stacks. Bacopa is used herbally like piracetam by those looking to improve focus and thinking and slow the decline of these functions in old age. Bacopa is a fast-growing species that can be very easily reproduced through cuttings. The plant grows well in soil or submerged in water, making it a common plant for aquariums and ponds. It can withstand very short periods of dry soil, but it is not like other succulent that deal with drought well.
