A staple in the Ayurvedic tradition, Bacopa Monnieri is a perennial herb from the Scrophulariaceae or Figwort family. It thrives in wet environments, so it is popular for aquariums and backyard ponds.

As an herb sacred to the Hindu god, Brahma, Bacopa monnieri is considered an herb of the mind. In the Hindu culture, it is used to consecrate newborns in the hope of increasing their intelligence.
