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.
