Rotala sp. 'Sunset'

€6.95
Rotala sp. 'Sunset' is also known as Ammannia sp. 'Sulawesi'. Rotala sp. 'Sunset' is a great midground plant that has great color and grows vertical. This plant is a difficult to grow for many in the hobby, but will also grow low tech. That doesn’t make a lot of sense but is actually how some plants are. They just do not like to be pushed in a high tech environment unless all their needs are met. Rotala sp. 'Sunset' is difficult to classify as hard or easy, if you have trouble with the plant then try it in different parts of the aquarium or in low tech as well as high tech.

Cryptocoryne scurrilis

€13.90
Cryptocoryne scurrilis originates from the island of Sumatra (Indonesia). This plant is very demanding when growing submerged and can be recommended only for advanced aquarists. C. scurrilis prefers warmer water with a fairly large circulation. A much greater chance of successful cultivation is when growing it emersed in humid conditions of a greenhouse or paludarium. As a substrate it is best to use sand and peat soil mixed with humus from beech leaves. Growth rate is very slow. The chromosome number 2n = 68.

Cryptocoryne matakensis

€29.50
Cryptocoryne matakensis was first registered as a new species in the magazine Aquaplanta (German magazine) in 2014 by Japanese plant hunter. But There was rumors about this plant for a long time. In 1932 a European botanist went to Anambas Islands, and they wrote a journey for record has a documented about this water plant, but failed to take it back. C. matakensis has been considered a mystery since then. This water plant is endemic species in Matak island and Siantan island (Anambas Islands) in Riau Islands, Indonesia. It’s common species in Anambas islands. C. matakensis growing with Lasia spinosa along small streams. The flower of Cryptocoryne matakensis is similar to Cryptocoryne auriculata, but it is a different group, first the rhizomes are quite different. This plant is easy to cultivate. C. matakensis grows very well in leaf litter of the beech tree, both emerged as submerged. In their natural habitat the pH is rather high, between 5.0 and 6.5, so you may expect that they may grow in a normal aquarium. The chromosome number is 2n = 34.

Echinodorus grisebachii 'Tropica'

€5.40
This very distinctive, small-growing swordplant cultivar was described in 1985 under the name Echinodorus parviflorus 'Tropica' in the German journal Aqua Planta. It was found in the 1980s in the nursery Tropica, Denmark, among plants of Echinodorus grisebachii 'Parviflorus' (called E. parviflorus back then) that were delivered from water plant nurseries in Asia. It probably arose through mutation in one of these nurseries. Under aquarium conditions, Echinodorus grisebachii 'Tropica' gets a height of just 5 to 10 centimeters, and with its leaf shape it resembles Samolus valerandi, therefore its trivial name "Samolus swordplant". The underwater leaves are coarse, medium to dark green, a little bullate and narrowly obovate. They are rounded towards the end, with an apiculate tip. The plant develops a compact, spreading rosette of many leaves with time. The cultivar 'Tropica' not only remains much lower than other Echinodorus grisebachii forms such as 'Parviflorus' and 'Amazonicus' but also grows much slower. It also needs more light than these. For a healthy growth, good nutrient supply, also through the substrate, and CO2 addition are recommendable. The favourable temperatures are about 22-28 °C. With its small size, Echinodorus grisebachii 'Tropica' is an excellent solitary plant in nano aquariums and contrasts with finely textured plants. In larger tanks it fits well into the foreground and looks nice as a loose group of few plants.

Eriocaulon sp. 'Udontanichibioni' - Seeds

€8.40
This small pipewort requires a fertile substrate to thrive, as it draws most of its nutrients from its extensive root system. The rest of its requirements are typical for most moderately difficult plants: lighting should be intense, CO2 is a necessity, and a typical water column fertilization regimen (including nitrate, phosphate, potassium, and micronutrients) should be in place.

Price per: 30 seeds.

Cuphea anagalloidea

€9.60
This plant was brought into the hobby as Rotala sp. 'Araguaia'. Only recently (2010), after it was brought to bloom, Cavan Allen was able to identfiy the true species of this alleged Rotala species by comparing it with samples from the Smithsonian Herbarium (Washington, D.C.). The genus Cuphea holds around 260 species and is distributed in the American tropics and subtropics. There are only a few aquatic Cuphea species, and C. anagalloidea is the first plant of the genus that is cultivated in aquaria. This species is endemic in Brazil, where it is distributed in the north, east, and south-east (Pará, Tocantins, Bahia, Goiás, Minas Gerais). Cuphea anagalloidea is a small, demanding stem plant. Its shoots grow around 1.5 to 2 cm wide, measured from leaf tip to leaf tip. The striking red colour on the upper side of the submersed leaves is most intensive under strong light, and it can look like it was brushed on. The red leaves often have small green spots. Emersed plants have green leaves and grow to an overall larger size.

Price per: 3 stems (grown emersed).

Eriocaulon sieboldianum

€34.90
Eriocaulon sieboldianum is an aquatic plant that is extremely rare. It shares many similarities to Eriocaulon 'Shiga' - they are often mistaken from one another. The main difference is the size of the leaves. Eriocaulon sp. Sieboldianum is quite a site to see when placed as a mid-ground because of its uniquely shaped leaves. We recommend strong lighting, rather soft water, a type of Aquasoil as substrate and good CO2 supply (about 20-30 mg/L).

Price per: 1 plant.

Hydrocotyle tripartita 'Japan'

€3.50
Hydrocotyle tripartita 'Japan' is a variant of Hydrocotyle tripartita from South-East Asia. This small, delicate Hydrocotyle is highly popular with aquascapers especially from Asia, and is known under diverse names there. It is characterised by fast, compact growth and small, intense green leaves on vertical stems. The plant is carpet-forming (5-10 cm tall) and its compact growth can be promoted by physically pressing the carpet with your hand when maintaining your aquarium. Under lots of light and CO2 as well as an ample supply of nutrients it grows very fast and may even tend to get invasisve. Under lower lights it grows more slowly, and its sprouts have a more upright than creeping growth habit.

Price per: plant with 20+ nods.

Ammannia crassicaulis

€6.95
Ammannia crassicaulis from Africa is also known as Nesaea crassicaulis. It is is a beautiful and highly recommended aquarium plant, although it has high demands for light. It has red-brown, cognac-coloured leaves. Stems becomes 30-50 cm and 8-15 cm wide and develop a reddish coloration under water. Grows best in soft and slightly acidic water. Make sure the lower leaves get sufficient light, otherwise they will die off. Easy to propagate by side shoots or cuttings, which can be cut off and planted in the bottom. Ammannia crassicaulis, is distributed in swamps, rice paddies and rivulets of the African and Madagascan tropics. It is often confused with Ammannia gracilis, which indeed looks very similar, however, in the aquarium it has less intensively red hues, but is rather of a yellowish green to pale red. Most plants in trade that are sold under the name N. crassicaulis really are Ammannia gracilis.

Rotala sp. 'H' Ra'

€4.40
Rotala 'H’ra' has rather narrow leaves and an overhanging or creeping growth. It is probably a variation of Rotala rotundifolia and has much resemblance to Rotala sp. ‘Green’. High light levels, good fertilization and added CO2 will induce almost exclusively creeping growth and a warm, rich orange coloration. This makes it possible to create a dense, orange mid-ground cushion or even an unusual, orange foreground carpet.

Eriocaulon parkeri - Seeds

€6.95
Eriocaulon Parkeri is native to the eastern North America.

Eriocaulon Parkeri is a smaller eriocaulon that will propagate by forming daughter plants that can be pulled easily from mother plant. Eriocaulon Parkeri looks great in the foreground around stone and wood pieces.
