  1. Bolbitis Heudelotii






    A large water fern with dark transparent leaves.
  2. 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...
  3. 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...
  4. Samolus Valerandi






  5. Tonina Fluviatilis






    Most hobbyist who had this plant agree that it does best in water with a low KH and low pH. While this plant shines at KH 0, it does not seem to be as particular about the GH values, ie Mg and Ca. CO2 supplementation is needed for optimal growth. It does not demand very strong light or high amounts of fertilizer; however, both should be targeted for difficult plants. If the conditions are not optimal the plant will start developing transparent spots in older leaves, ultimately leading to the...
  6. Ludwigia Arcuata






    Ludwigia arcuata has long fine leaves and is heavily ramified. The growth of this plant is rapid under sufficient light, nutrients and CO2. Micronutrients addition will help enhance the natural orange/red coloration. In general it is easier to get good coloration than with Rotala rotundifolia. This plant can be grown even in aquariums without CO2 injection. Regular trimming and thinning should be done on this plant to get a nice rich bush. As the plant ramifies easily, it can create quiet a...
  7. 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...
  8. 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...
  9. 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...
  10. Eleocharis Pusilla






    A species growing shorter and more compact than E. acicularis in submersed form. Previously, this plant was marketed as E. parvula but the naming was clarified by Kasselmann(2010). This plant is a light shade of green with hair-like leaves. It produces creeping runners with single or rosette-like leaves arranged. The root system is not very large but due to its growing habit it can easily be planted in most substrates. This plant should be treated like grass, to get a low and thick carpet...
  11. Hygrophila Corymbosa






    An easy and fast grower that can also grow emersed to produce beautiful light purple flowers.
  12. Nymphaea Micrantha "gefleckt"






    A beautiful water lily with green, red and black spotted leaves.
  13. Pistia Stratiotes






    A large floating plant with larger roots.
  14. Alternanthera Reineckii 'lila'






    Under Construction
  15. Rotala Indica






  16. Elatine Hydropiper
