Hygrophila polysperma 'Sunset'

€3.60
Hygrophila polysperma 'Sunset', or 'Rosanervig' (red-vein) as it was named by the Danish aquatic plant nursery Tropica, was originally cultivated in the mid 1980's. One note of interest about this plant is the white coloration the leaf veins often exhibit. This is not a sign of a deficiency but rather it is believed to be caused by a virus that blocks the production of chlorophyll in the surrounding tissue. This virus, fortunately, is specific to this particular species and poses absolutely no threat to anything else in the aquarium. This beautiful variation of the steadfast H. polysperma, a native of Asia, has become a common but popular addition to the planted aquarium hobby. This undemanding yet interesting stem plant is one of the easiest colored red plants to grow. Its ability to handle virtually any temperature (18-28C), pH (5-8), or hardness in the typical planted aquarium makes it suitable for many applications. While CO2 and high light are not requirements for this cultivar to grow, they are essential in bringing out the nice red to pink color for which this plant is famous. Iron is another factor in intense coloration without enough Fe in the water column, this plant will become pale or, in extreme deficiencies, even white. This plant, like many of the faster growing stem plants, can develop a tendency for horizontal growth and creep along the substrate. This is often caused by higher light levels and a plant's natural tendency to 'take over' as much space as it can before it changes to producing more vertical growth. Ways to avoid this are to crowd the plant or to increase phosphate (PO4) levels. Propagating and pruning this plant is very simple. Simply top and replant. This species produces many side shoots when pruned like a hedge, creating an attractive, manicured bush. H. polysperma 'Sunset' has great potential as a red stem plant. Its interesting leaf texture and color make it a great addition to the mid- or background. The leaf size, up to 5 cm, is not overly large, making it suitable for all but the smallest aquaria.

Price per: 3 stems.

Helanthium 'Vesuvius'

€3.60
Helanthium 'Vesuvius' is the first cultivar from the group of runner-forming sword plants (Helanthium, formerly in the genus Echinodorus). It was selected from Helanthium bolivianum 'Angustifolius' (aka Echinodorus angustifolius) by the aquatic plant nursery Oriental (Singapur). The narrow, tightly spiralling fresh green leaves are pointy and make this Helanthium a real eye-catcher. The plant is very decorative as a group or as solitary plant in the middle ground of the aquarium. Under favourable conditions it spreads fast through runners. When cultivated above the waterline, the emerged leaves are almost straight. Only under water it develops its typical spiralling leaves.

Price per: 1 plant.

Fissidens sp. 'Khao Sok'

€28.90
This interesting new variety of Fissidens moss forms velvety, deeply green carpets of small, compact shoots. The feather-like, soft shoots are about 2-3 mm wide, branched at the base and have a decumbent to ascending growth habit. In the aquarium, Fissidens sp. 'Khao Sok' grows very slowly and benefits from a good supply of nutrients and CO2. The small shoots are best tied to driftwood, rock or ceramic moss pads. Alternatively, you can also squeeze them into cracks of wood or stones. Another option is application by "yogurt method".
With its rather spreading, densely ramified growth, Fissidens sp. 'Khao Sok' is best suited to be used for aquascaping. This filigree moss is one of the most beautiful epiphytes currently available and can be used for the greening of hardscape in many ways. Its deeply green, delicately textured cushions are an eye-catcher in bigger aquascapes as well as in nano aquariums!

Each portion is: moss grown on Dogwood disc Ø 35 - 40 mm.

Schismatoglottis prietoi

€5.90
Schismatoglottis prietoi is native to the Philippines and was first found on Cebu Island. It was scientifically described and named after the plant collector Esquerion Prieto in 2015. There are already few aquarium-suitable plants from river and stream banks among the many Schismatoglottis species, however S. prietoi is so far the only species that is a true aquatic also in the nature. It develops large stands in sandy to gravelly riverbeds by thin creeping rhizomes and runners, comparable to Cryptocoryne species. Its small, elliptic, glossy leaves resemble those of Anubias 'Petite' but are lighter green, the plant also grows faster than this Anubias.
This small aroid is perfectly suitable as aquarium plant and deserves a wide distribution in the hobby. Schismatoglottis prietoi can be planted into the ground, however there are also reports of its successful use as epiphyte on rock. It has no special demands and also thrives in medium-hard water, however medium lighting and a good nutrient supply via the water column are very beneficial. The growth may be quite slow in the beginning but accelerates after establishing. With time, this Schismatoglottis forms a dense, broad stand. It is easily propagating by splitting and separating of young plantlets.
This new, hitherto little known aquarium can be used in many ways, best as group in the foreground to midground of an aquarium. In "geographically correct" Asia-themed tanks it is a right replacement for similar Anubias forms, originating from Africa.

Ludwigia repens 'Mesakana'

€4.90
This colourful, round-leaved plant is selection of Ludwigia repens. Ludwigia repens 'Mesakana' is not a particularly difficult plant, but has somewhat higher demands than "standard" L. repens. A good macro and micronutrient supply is important, also rather soft water is beneficial. Good lighting provides vibrand red and orange tones. In the midground to background of not too small aquaria, a bush of Ludwigia repens 'Mesakana' provides a colourful eyecatcher. It contrasts well with fine-textured green plants. In comparison to other varietys of L. repens and to L. palustris x repens, the leaves of L. repens "Mesakana" grow larger, and have a rounder form. They are also more colourful and have a more pronounced pattern.

Price per: 3 stems.

Microsorum sp. 'Mini Coral'

€10.90
A fantastic mini version of Microsorum 'Trident'. This small Microsorum grow to about 10 cm in height. Leaves are similar to Trident but the shape is more defined and they are shorter. Like all Java Fern it requires attaching to wood or rock. If planted in the bottom of the aquarium you should not cover the rhizome because it will rot. As the leaves are smaller this plant can be used to create a bigger sense of scale within the aquarium.

Price per: plant with 5-6 leaves on the rhizome.

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.

Price per: 1 stem (grown emersed).

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.

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.

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.
