Knowledge Base

  1. Alisma Gramineum






    Alisma gramineum is a small aquatic plant in the water-plantain family. It has several common names including narrowleaf water-plantain, ribbonleaf water-plantain or ribbon-leaved water-plantain and grass-leaved water-plantain.
  2. Rotala Indica (erroneous - Ammania Sp Bonsai)






    Rotala indica 'Bonsai' is best described as a compact, moderate growing version of Bacopa caroliniana. Plant it in small groups and trim it often. Cuttings may be re-planted in the group to achieve a more dense group.
  3. Lagenandra Meeboldii 'red'






    This plant is originally from India and is quite similar to a medium-sized, broad-leaved Cryptocoryne. It can be used in the aquarium like Cryptocorynes, but needs sufficient light to develop colours.
  4. Acmella Repens






  5. Acorus Calamus






    Sweet Sedge is a perennial herb, 30 to 100 cm tall. In habit it resembles the Iris. It consists of tufts of basal leaves that rise from a spreading rhizome. The leaves are erect yellowish-green, radical, with pink sheathing at their bases, sword-shap
  6. Alternanthera Reineckii 'mini'






    This miniature version of the well-known Alternanthera is characterized by compact growth and a slower growth rate. It is particularly suitable for small aquariums or as a foreground plant in larger aquascapes.
  7. Ludwigia Sphaerocarpa






    Under good conditions L. sphaerocarpa will have a very compact growth with the top leaves stacked one on top of the other. The top most leaves are yellow to orange in color. Like many Ludwigia spp. it tends to grow at an angle with the substrate and produce a good amount of visible roots. However, unlike other Ludwigia spp. this plant does not branch so readily. One thing this plant needs is as much light as possible. If fertilization and light is not sufficient, the plant will start...
  8. Cabomba Furcata






    Cabomba furcata
  9. Bolbitis Heudelotii






    A large water fern with dark transparent leaves.
  10. Hemianthus Micranthemoides






    This is a very versatile plant with lanceolate or elliptical leaves, up to 1cm long. The leaves have a slight transparency. The plants grow straight up if not trimmed and light is low. It can grow in aquariums without CO2 injection. The abundant branching leads nice, lush bushes suitable for the midground in nano aquariums. In larger aquariums it can also be used as foreground if trimmed frequently. The correct name for the plant commercially available is Hemianthus glomeratus. This was...

  17. Limnophila Sessiliflora






    Undemanding plant with needle-like bright green leaves, capable of growing in both high and low light. Although somewhat similar in leaf shape to Cabomba caroliniana, the plant can grow in lower light. This plant is mainly taking nutrients from the water column, the root system being very underdeveloped. L sessiliflora plant is a good indicator for low iron levels, so keep an eye for yellowish growing tips. The faster it grows the longer the inter-nodal lengths Once the plant reaches the top...
  18. Rotala Macrandra






    Rotala macrandra is a very rewarding plant when it is grown under the proper conditions. The leaves are oval, opposite, very thin and delicate but have a deep red coloration. Unlike other Rotala species, this plant does not require nitrogen starvation or very intense light to reach a red coloration. However sub-optimal light will result in greener leaves. An individual stem may be up to 7cm in diameter, but 3-5cm are more common in planted aquariums. The plant branches easily and grows very...
  19. Hemianthus Callitrichoides "cuba"






    This popular, small leafed plant is often shortened as ‘HC’ and is now a staple in the hobby. CO2 is by and large required. Hemianthus callitrichoides ‘Cuba’ will survive and grow slowly in non-CO2 injected aquarium if low /no competition for CO2 is present. Although this plant is not particularly demanding in terms of nutrients, nitrate levels and all macronutrients need to be added to the aquarium. If enough light and space is provided it has a creeping habit. However, when the carpet is...
