Staurogyne repens

Staurogyne repens

Staurogyne repens AKA Tropica #49 is a fantastic new foreground plant. It is a stem but grows fast and thick. It almost reminds me of the old standby English Ivy for a ground cover. LOL Each stem is easily planted in the foreground and it will root and grow then it can be clipped and replanted and the old stem will develop several new growth heads. This plant reproduces like crazy by clipping. CO2 is helpful but not necessary. Light and some nutrients however are! This may also be grown emersed in bog like situations. This is sold by the stem!

Pygmy Chain Sword Narrow Leaf Loose

Pygmy Chain Sword Narrow Leaf Loose

(Echinodorus tenellus) This is a Sword Plant in miniature. The leaves will not grow up further than 2.5-3 inches from the base. It reproduces via chains or runners from the base of the main plant. It can also bloom and produce seed, but the seed is difficult to germinate. The plant is commonly known as "Mud Babies" here in the south, because it can produce very long chains of plants in the dark mud along lakes, ponds, and rivers. It, like all swords, prefers a nutritious substrate with iron supplements. It can be grown emersed and will bloom more readily if grown above water. these are sold as individual bare root plants

Hygro Kompact

Hygro Kompact

(Hygrophila corymbosa var. kompact) This is a very compact variety of Hygrophila corymbosa, with the leaves set very close to the stalk. It forms many side shoots, enhancing the compact appearance. The leaves are a dark brownish green when the plant is delivered, but after a transitional period in the aquarium they will turn light green with silver-white on the underside. This plant will tolerate medium light, but will show much more red in higher light. In strong light,the newest leaves will be reddish brown in color. Over time, the oldest leaves will die away. New leaves will start to appear quickly to replace the older ones until it becomes a very low but dense "bush." Note: Extreme leaf loss (except just after shipping) may be a sign of light levels that are too low. This plant is sold per stem pricing.. I will have new pictures in next day or so.

Ranunculus inundatus

Ranunculus inundatus

Ranunculus inundatus is a fantastic foreground midground plant.. It likes medium light and some CO2 but the unusual leaves sitting on the fine stems look like they are floating in little clusters above the substrate.. It Likes Medium Light but will take lower light though it will not be as full with longer internode lengths. CO2 is helpful for full thick growth but not absolutely necessary. it can be trimmed to make a solid mound like in the picture or allowed to go its own way and distribute itself over a further distance.. This is sold as single bare root nodes.

Giant baby Tears Portions

Giant baby Tears Portions

( Micranthemum umbrosum) Giant baby Tears is a wonderful creeping foreground plant. It needs High Light to stay very low growing and small. The higher the light the shorter the plant! Pinching the tips will cause the plant to spread quicker. It is a hardy plant that is usually only affected by low light levels, which cause it to grow upright instead of prostrate. This is sold as a rooted mass of stems filling a 2 fl oz. cup this plant likes light for full leafy growth. Plant the stems apart enough to allow for light or the bases will become stems only and have leaves only toward the top where it can get light. they will grow fuller with leaves and fill out the space well. this is easily cut to increase your initial stem yield as well. NOTE: get the mass of stems wet before you try to pull them apart or untangle them.. this make s it much easier and reduces leaf loss due to tangling!

Glosso portions

Glosso portions

(Glossostigma elantoides) This is by far my favorite carpet plant. I have had both great successes and great failures with this wonderful little plant. Take each strand (you'll normally have 1-2in of plant) and, with tweezers, bury them along your substrate making sure only the leaves are showing (no roots). Each strand should be placed about 1/3 in from each other, this will allow for optimal growth without the plant overshadowing itself to begin with. If you want a thick carpet then plant it 80-90% of where you want it to grow. It needs high-very high light to grow as a LOW carpet, if it doesn't get high light then it will grow upwards towards the light instead of a carpet. It also loves ferts and CO2. After a couple of weeks you will see the glosso spread rapidly, and if you use CO2 it will produce thousands of tiny bubbles. After 2 months it was a lush carpet that I had to prune to keep it from covering everything. It also has and immense root system so if you have to remove it for whatever reason, the whole carpet will come up in one go (not called a carpet plant for nothing) and take a lot of substrate with it. Sold as a 4 ounce portion cup worth like seen in the pic. this...
