The creeping growth of this stem-plant makes it 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 is considerably slower, making it easier to maintain.
- If received invitro, please remove all gel from the roots. Where possible we try and ship without pots or rockwool. Due to them being non-biodegradable we prefer to propagate in an environmentally conscious way.
- CO2 will generally yield better growth rates.
- Stable water conditions are a must, changes should occur over a period of time in order to reduce chances of melting etc.
