Tropica Pots are brimming with plants and have lots of mass and healthy, well-developed roots. Most pots can be divided into several portions or individual plants which are planted separately.
Lilaeopsis brasiliensis from South America can grow very compact, but a "lawn effect'' (4-7 cm tall) is only achieved at high light intensity.
When planting in the aquarium small clumps (approx. 1/8 pot) should be placed a few centimetres apart to help the plants grow together more quickly. Place in an open position without shading from other plants to ensure good light.
Lilaeopsis brasiliensis can be used in garden ponds, and also tolerates low salt concentrations in brackish aquariums.
IMPORTANT: While we do our best to ensure that your Tropica plants arrive to you safe and sound - they are only guaranteed to "arrive alive" if UPS Express, Expedited, or Canada Post Xpresspost or Priority shipping methods are chosen at checkout.
