This attractive new variety from Brazil is called Staurogyne repens, a member of the acanthus family. It looks a bit like a miniature Hygrophila but is an outstanding plant for the foreground. It grows very slowly and in good conditions will creep across the substrate. Staurogyne requires strong light and a good supply of nutrients via the substrate. Regularly trimming the shoot tips will encourage the plant to grow lots of new horizontal shoots, and will eventually give you a very nice, thick clump of plants. For aquascaping purposes, these beauties mix well with Hemianthus callitrichoides.
The algae and snail-free Dennerle In-Vitro laboratory plants can be kept in the box for weeks before planting. Please never open the box before use as the sterile environment can get contaminated and the quality of the product can quickly deteriorate. Rinse off the jelly and cut back the root-ends before planting. The plant can be separated into smaller bunches before use.
