Hydrocotyle leucocephala has alternate leaves that form along a creeping stem from which its half-dollar sized and shaped leaves appear. It is one of the easiest plants in cultivation and is suitable for almost any aquarium.

Hydrocotyle leucocephala is particularly versatile, as it can be planted in the substrate or as a floating plant. It is not unusual for portions of the plant that are at the surface of the water to produce small white flowers.

Hydrocotyle leucocephala is edible. The leaves have a slight peppery taste and are used as a spice.
