Glossostigma elatinoides from New Zealand is much in demand in Japanese-inspired aquariums. It is one of the smallest aquarium plants (2-3 cm tall), and thus a good foreground plant. A difficult plant demanding a lot of light. Grows upwards if light is poor. Make sure larger plants do not overshadow it. When planting in the aquarium small clumps (approx. 1/8 pot) should be placed at intervals of a few centimetres to help the plants grow together more quickly. CO2 addition and soft water promote growth significantly.

Not all plants are equal. We work really hard to make sure you get the best quality plants at the best prices. What you can expect to receive are as per photos. Plants are snail free, algae free and in great health. Tissue culture plants can vary in quantity and size. Tissue culture plants will continue to grow in their cups until the nutrients within the media is completely exhausted. Store in a cool and clean area if you do not intend to plant immediately. Plant immediately once opened. Please refer to our guide on tissue culture plants.

We recommend the usage of a 2HR Aquarist Fertilizer with all our aquarium plants for the best growth, colouration and plant health.
