Aquarium Plant Database - Beta Version 0.1

  1. 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...
  2. 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...
  3. Elatine Hydropiper






  4. Eichhornia Natans






  5. Eichhornia Azurea






  6. Egleria Fluctuans






  7. Ludwigia Ovalis






  8. Ludwigia Repens






  9. Ludwigia Sedoides






  10. 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...
  11. Ludwigia Brevipes






  12. 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...
