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.
Staurogyne repens is a fresh green, compact and hardy plant for the foreground of the aquarium and it was found in River Rio Cristalino in the southern Amazonas. Its nearest relative in the aquaristic is Hygrophila but Staurogyne is different with its marked compact, low and bushy stature (5-10 cm) and small green leaves (each stem is 3.4 cm wide).
During planting in the aquarium, the longest upright shoots should be cut off and new horizontally creeping shoots will soon form from the plant basis and gradually colonize the gravel.
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.
