Echinodorus 'Rosé'

This beautiful plant is a hybrid between Echinodorus horemanii ‘Red’ and Echinodorus horizontalis. It was first produced in 1986 by Hans Barth in Dessau and becomes 25-40 cm tall and a rosette from 15-25 cm wide. New underwater leaves are a beautiful pink, and initially the leaves have red-brown spots. A nutritious bottom promotes growth, but otherwise Echinodorus 'Rosé' is undemanding and thus an excellent plant for beginners. ..

Elatine hydropiper

The creeping habit of this stem-plant highly attractive for creating carpets in the aquarium. The very small leaf size makes it an obvious choice for nano-tanks.Its fresh green colour compliments wood, rocks and other plants extraordinary well and has made the plant increasingly popular.The growth of Elatine hydropiper is quite similar to Hemianthus callitrichoides ‘Cuba’ and Glossostigma elatinoides but considerably slower, making it easier to maintain...

Eleocharis acicularis 'Mini'

Eleocharis acicularis 'mini' has even lower growth than the common Eleocharis parvula and was given to Tropica by Thomas Barr from US. Plant the mini-version in small portions covering a larger area. In short time, a dense carpet will be obtained. Needs light to perform optimal, however, it is one of the most secure species for craeting a carpet – and a minimum of maintenance since leaves stays small (3-5 cm). Suitable for nano-aquariums. ..

Eleocharis parvula

A low-growing Eleocharis that forms runners close to the parent plant. It is prettiest planted in small bunches quite close to each other, which will gradually form a solid mass of plants. An ideal foreground plant, equally suited to large and small aquariums. ..

Eriocaulon cinerum (1-2-GROW!)

The genus Eriocaulon is usually adapted to soft water. Eriocaulon cinereum is more tolerant than most and will thrive in medium-hard water.  Soft water will promote overall health.This is a quite small, very narrow-leaved and almost cushion-growing plant, that demands good supply of light and CO2 to develop. The plant usually flowers very willingly after planting in the aquarium and the numerous little flower stems gives a unique appearance. Flowering easily drains the plant of energy, but given the right conditions the plant will gather new energy and grow from basis after some time. ..

Glossostigma elatinoides

Glossostigma elatinoides from New Zealand is much in demand in Japanese-inspired aquariums. It is one of the smallest aquarium plants (2-3 cm tall), and thus a good foreground plant. A difficult plant demanding a lot of light. Grows upwards if light is poor. Make sure larger plants do not overshadow it. When planting in the aquarium small clumps (approx. 1/8 pot) should be placed at intervals of a few centimetres to help the plants grow together more quickly. CO2 addition and soft water promote growth significantly. ..

Gratiola viscidula

Gratiola viscidula originates from Northern America and is relatively new to the aquatic hobby. The somewhat ‘thorny’ appearance of the submersed form makes it very distinct and easily recognizable.It is quite easy to grow and prefers good light. By regular trimming it can be kept very low, almost carpeting, but will also present itself well as a fore/mid-ground cushion-plant.Each stem is approximately 1-2 cm wide and can become 10+ cm tall. The stem willingly branches and spreads giving a very dense appearance to the plant...

Helanthium 'Vesuvius' (1-2 GROW)

Aquarium plant from tissue culture in closed cup.Helanthium 'Vesuvius' (previously called Echinodorus 'Vesuvius') is a cultured species based on Echinodorus angustifolia from Oriental Aquarium Plants. The narrow and twisted green leaves makes it an unusual addition to the Helanthium family. The rosette species grows vigorously with many medium length and narrow leaves (10-20 cm tall), and is highly decorative as a solitary plant (rosette 10-15 cm wide). 'Vesuvius' spreads readily with runners. An easy and undemanding plant that requires medium to high light conditions. ..

Hemianthus callitrichoides 'Cuba'

Hemianthus callitrichoides is one of the smallest aquarium plants in the world, and creeps over the bottom with millimetre-sized round leaves. If planted in small clumps a few centimetres apart, it will spread rapidly and cover the bottom like a carpet. Hemianthus callitrichoides is an attractive foreground plant for small aquariums. Found on Cuba west of Havana ..

Lilaeopsis brasiliensis (1-2-Grow)

Lilaeopsis brasiliensis from South America can grow very compact, but a "lawn effect'' (4-7 cm tall) is only achieved at high light intensity. When planting in the aquarium small clumps (approx. 1/8 pot) should be placed a few centimetres apart to help the plants grow together more quickly. Place in an open position without shading from other plants to ensure good light. Lilaeopsis brasiliensis can be used in garden ponds, and also tolerates low salt concentrations in brackish aquariums. ..

Marsilea crenata

This small fern comes from Asia, where it often grows in rice fields. The leaves are tiny and rarely wider than 0.5cm. It is a hardy plant that tolerates poor light conditions and high temperatures. However, improved conditions are beneficial to the plant. Planted in small bundles that spread with offshoots. Creates a 1-3cm high and close carpet, well-anchored in the bottom layer. ..

Marsilea hirsuta

Marsilea hirsuta is a carpet-plant from Australia. A fascinating plant, usually delivered with leaves like a four-leaf clover. After a transitional period it develops different types of leaves, possibly a low form with single leaves like a large Glossostigma, or alternatively develop two, three or four-lobed leaves varying in height (from 2-10 cm), depending on the growth conditions. Whichever form the plant adopts, it forms runners and spreads rapidly round the aquarium. ..

Micranthemum 'Monte Carlo'

Micranthemum 'Monte Carlo' comes from Europe and Eastern Asia. It has compact, round and fresh light green leaves on creeping stalks and creates a fast-growing carpet in the front of the aquarium. The plant can grow in light shadow, but requires good light conditions, as well as CO2 additive, in order to develop optimally and become really compact. ..

Myriophyllum 'Guyana' (1-2-GROW!)

This Myriophyllum keeps its bright, green colour even at very high light intensity. Every stem will only measure approximately 2-3 cm (1”), but it branches willingly and the plant quickly becomes dense and lush.Cutting down is often necessary to maintain the access to light and water flow. Its moderate growth makes Myriophyllum ‘Guyana’ particularly adapted to nano tanks. ..

Riccia fluitans (1-2-GROW)

Japanese Takashi Amano has inspired many aquarium owners to keep the 1-5 cm tall cosmopolitic moss, Riccia fluitans, submerged. It can be kept down by tying it to a stone with a piece of fishing line, but new shoots always grow towards the surface, so it may be necessary to prune it with scissors. Riccia fluitans thrives best with added CO2 and in good growing conditions small oxygen bubbles form on the leaf tips. As a traditional floating plant offers good protection for young fish. ..

Rotala 'Vietnam H'ra' (1-2-GROW!)

Rotala 'H’ra' has rather narrow leaves and an overhanging or creeping growth. It is probably a variation of Rotala rotundifolia and has much resemblance to Rotala sp. ‘Green’.High light levels, good fertilization and added CO2 will induce almost exclusively creeping growth and a warm, rich orange coloration.  This makes it possible to create a dense, orange mid-ground cushion or even an unusual, orange foreground carpet. ..

Sagittaria subulata (1-2-GROW)

Sagittaria subulata from South America is an ideal, undemanding foreground plant whose short runners form a compact group. Place individual plants 2-4 cm apart. This plant may cause problems because in certain conditions it suddenly grows to a height of 50 cm when it grows older. But if it is then moved into the background it may become low again. In the aquarium it sometimes sends a long flower stem to the surface, and small white flowers unfold just above the water surface. ..

Utricularia graminifolia (1-2-GROW)

Utricularia graminifolia from Asia belongs to the bladderwort family. All the plants in this family are insect eating, perennial water and marsh plants. Bladder traps are a unique feature of this family, which Utricularia graminifolia forms after a short period of time in the aquarium. The species name means 'with grass like leaves' and the fresh green leaves after a short period of time form a pretty mat which looks like a lawn (2-8 cm tall). Utricularia graminifolia is therefore an ideal foreground plant. ..
