Description

Originating from Southern Mexico the Hydrocotyle leucocephala is one of the less demanding aquatic plants happy in most tanks, this little beauty is perfect for beginners. You can train this plant to grow around wood or along the floor by tying to wood or weighing down. Alternatively you let just let it grow, where it can reach heights of up to 60cm.

This is a perfect plant for covering air pumps or filters etc. Just plant in a good substrate and use Aqua Fine Line to tie to whatever you want it to cover...simple.

I bought this a few weeks ago, it's growing well but has gone very pale even yellowish. What am 8Idoing wrong?

 
Staff

needs more food. What fertilisers are you offering and how much?


 
Guest
Hello again. I'm adding TNC complete at the recommended dose once a week. Looking at the plants now, a week later, the edges of the leaves are browning and they are looking quite wilty. However there is strong growth of new shoots/offspringjQuery111109803527138985892_1549097268399?

I’d recommend Neutro T instead as we have working knowledge of that fwetiliser. It’s much more popular.
