Commonly known as Madagascar Lace Leaf this beautiful plant has been grown by Aqua Essentials and is potted ready for your aquarium. So before we discuss the plant, let's touch on why a plant grown by Aqua Essentials (AE) is important?
We feel this is an important step for UK hobbyists for several reasons. Not only do we know and understand a lot more about this particular plant but they also have much less environmental impact.
- they're not shipped across the world (better for environment)
- they're not stressed from shipping (adjust better to your aquarium)
- they're growing right up to the minute they are dispatched and if you choose Express Delivery at the checkout (please do for the plant's sake) they generally arrive the next working day with tracking provided and a 1 hour delivery window.
So when buying this plant, you buy with confidence and minimal environmental impact and that's something we are very passionate and proud about.
Now onto the plant...
The leaves have a lattice texture and can vary in size depending on its origin. Generally, the leaves are relatively broad and the lattice effect of the leaves is almost web like and very decorative. The plant grows in the aquarium under basic conditions which means this plant is suitable for beginners and up.
In terms of positioning, the background is a suitable location. Simply drop it into the chosen location and leave it be. It will throw roots down and anchor itself. Feel free to leave it in the pot - it's grown well for us like this.
Note: picture is an example of the plant you will receive. Some may have fewer leaves, some may have more - totally depended on 'where they are' in their growing cycle. If you are very specific and want to know how many leaves they currently have, contact us before buying.
