The plant grows in water or it has its roots within a permanent water course. This corresponds to marshes, bogs, water courses, lake and river shores. Humid areas, with almost constant rainfall. Short dry periods are possible (generally not longer than 1 month). In shadow. Steep slopes facing south or a vegetation cover which filters 40 - 80 % of light. In deep shadow. Deep ravines facing south with additional shadow from trees, or where there is a very dense vegetation cover which gives 80 - 100 % shadow (for instance, the Valdivian forests)
