Green Aqua Hemmianthus Callitrichoides
The Hemmianthus Callitrichoides "Cuba" - called "HC" is one of the smallest aquarium plants. If planted densely it will form a beautiful foreground carpet. This plant needs a lot of light and CO2 to grow properly. Also, we recommend planting it into Powder type of substrates to make sure its small roots will stay in the substrate. If not trimmed regularly it tends to release the "grip of the roots" and come up as a whole. This usually happens after a year or so. The HC was discovered in Cuba, at the western part of Havana.
All Green Aqua branded lab plants are cultivated specially in our laboratories - in a special jelly. They are free of snails, algae and pesticides - totally harmless to fish and shrimp. These unique cups can be kept for a relatively long time (days to weeks) before planting and they are absolutely easier to prepare before planting. They are young plants with strong roots compared to their potted counterparts. Please only open the cups before planting - in order to avoid early contamination with mould. Wash the plants completely free from jelly before use. Plant using tweezers. Remember that soft water, good lighting and CO2 injection usually promote better growth and health.
