Bolbitis heteroclita is cultivated as an ornamental plant for aquariums and garden ponds. It is one of two species of Bolbitis that are popular for use as freshwater aquarium plants. However, it is exacting to grow this or Bolbitis heudelotii as fully submersed plants. These plants are very sensitive.
This species, however, is easy to grow as a terrestrial or submerged (in ponds) potted plant. It is remarkable for the resemblance of the fronds of a certain size to poison ivy leaves. Some plant nurseries and growers sell this under the invalid former name Bolbitis asiatica.
