Again one of the most popular planted aquarium plants, this little beauty will transform your tank. The Hemianthus callitrichoides originated from Cuba, west of Havana and is one of the smallest aquarium plants. With round leaves that are only millimeter's in size.
If planted in clumps a few cm's apart it will spread rapidily creating a carpet look over the bottom. Lots of attention required but the reward is definitely worth the effort.

Received these plants the day after dispatch. They were well packed, very healthy and are growing strongly in my aquarium just one week after planting.

As ever great service, great plants, brought instant life to my new tank, being pumped with Co2 growing really well, can’t recommend them highly enough, I won’t shop anywhere else now, well if you get the best why would you go anywhere else.

Arrived in great condition, with plenty of it! I was very pleased with the amount I received after ordering 2 portions. A little fiddly to remove from the rock wool but otherwise I had no issues planting them in my tank.

Good compact pot and a quality, healthy plant. Easily breaks down into 10 smaller bunches to be distributed around the aquarium. Again, something my Fancies and Comets seem to be leaving alone for the moment.

Arrive alive and well. Packaged securely. Very fast delivery. Seems to be doing fine in the tank after a couple of weeks. Very happy with it.

5 stars for condition on arrival. I have yet to discover how it fares in my aquarium. I have tied it to some rock as shown in a recent video on AE . An experiment, but after one week it is still there and appears to be growing. Will update in due course.

lovely little plant - came very well packaged - no damage at all, it is thriving in my tank.
Date Added: 12/02/2014 by Ian Bielby
I got the plants from a company called “Aqua Essentials”, (aquaessentialsl.co.uk) I’ve never used them before, I have no links to the company, but I can’t recommend them more highly, the plants are great, the service is perfect, (next day) they sent me a full colour brochure listing all their plants with pictures, they stock all your plants needs in one place.

Arrived well packaged and in excellent condition. I have ordered plants off the internet from other companies but these plants from aquaessentials so far have been of the best quality

Great plant, perfect condition, possibly because I collected rather than post but an awesome plant all round
Date Added: 30/12/2013 by Andrew Culley
a little smaller than I expected but that is not their fault, I had just never seen one before. The plant was a nice bright, healthy green and I honestly couldn't of asked for more! I will definitely buy here again!

Once introduced to my aquarium and split, HC is thriving and spreading - no doubt due to CO2 injection and regular fertiliser dosing. Plants from Aqua Essentials are the healthiest I've ever bought from anywhere. Excellent value for money too.

Arrived quickly and in lovely condition, but I think my cold water tank is unsuitable for it. Was hoping it would survive/thrive, but unfortunately I think it is on its way out!

Beautiful little plant, I'm about to re-organise my tank and will be looking for a few more of these. Just what I was looking for.
Date Added: 15/10/2013 by Nick Williams
It came well packed, and perfectly healthy, just waiting on them to grow and grow and create a wonderful carpet.
Date Added: 14/10/2013 by Robert Gray
The plant was very good condition. I found it difficult plant in tank which is a fish tank. I am at present trying to establish out of tank.
Date Added: 10/10/2013 by Paul Said
Very nice addition and spreads quite well in a short time. "Cuba" is very distinct and beds lovely over time, remember that cuba NEEDS CO2 and is a more advanced plant, but worth the effort.
Date Added: 15/09/2013 by David Linthorne
Arrived in top class condition, and settled well after planting. It grew so well in fact that it now covers the floor of my modified fluval edge which is exactly why I bought it!

This is a great foreground plant. Need more attention than any other plants. Hard-to-find grow but best foreground plant ever.

This is a great foreground plant, and I would say it needs more attention than any other plants. Not easy to grow, but the best foreground plant ever.

as always from ae plants are healthy and pleanty in the tubs thanks ae
Date Added: 28/05/2013 by James Nicholls
Absolutely fantastic specimen, i have ordered 10 of these in total now and all HC have been healthy, established, very deep green, very well grown and also the roots are very white in color with no discoloration. One of the HC was almost the same size as the pot! The Staff are incredibly polite and very helpful with the technical issues/concerns. I made two separate orders within one night, Aqua Essential (AE)actually combined the order, changed the delivery type to have a much faster turn around and then gave me the rest of the money back in voucher points!!!! I am sold on AE as an organisation and will be going to them for any future plants! Thanks again, Regards, James

If your looking for HC then you dont need to look any further i have bought loads of this product from many retailers and can honestly say there isnt one out there that will get it to your door as quick as these guys. This is also by far the best quality and heathyest i have ever receavied from anywhere the portions size is second to none and the roots are already long enough to hold int down once planted. A must buy for anyone who is looking to create a HC carpet

Very nice plants that I had from you, and will deal with you again.

The plants that arrived were great! They are in my tank now bathing in light and CO2! Hopefully I won't kill them :)
Date Added: 06/05/2013 by George Edwards
Excellent little plant. Arrived in great condition, just like the photo. Doing great in my tank, a lush dark green. And didn't experience any die off/melting either. Separated it into several clumps and it has carpeted well in a few weeks. It's not the fastest growing, so I am now going to order two more pots. My advice is order a few pots to get a better carpet from the get go :)

Great little plant, amazingly bright green and in A1 condition
Date Added: 05/04/2013 by Daniel Gray
I bought 5 pots of these to carpet my 180L Juwel Rio tank and the quality they arrived to me was second-to-none! Absolutely fantastic. These plants THRIVE really well in CO2 infused planted aquaria where CO2 is directed towards the plant. T5 lights and SeaChem fertiliser (soon to be Neutro+!) is what I am using and already seeing a steady growth of the plants. It is a difficult plant to grow but pressurised CO2 with lights and the proper ferts will make it look lush!
