Better together


With an aquascape in mind, we've put together a superb mixture of 12 premium quality potted aquarium plants that have been chosen by our experienced Plant Manager. These are not your average plants and you won't find anything like it elsewhere - in fact, the complete opposite. Super fresh, well rooted, strong, healthy and algae free. This is a surprise box of plants that will vary each week depending on what aquarium plants we have in stock. You will not find better quality anywhere - we guarantee you that.

You now have 2 choices - choose whether you want:

  1. Standard - selection of plants from the main area of the greenhouse.
  2. Premium - selection from entire greenhouse where our premium priced plants are added along with rare or slow growing species that cost more.

Mixed boxes are perfect for anyone who's considering setting up a planted aquarium but are looking for an economical start with the highest quality aquarium plants available in the UK. You may not be sure which plants to choose so leave it up to us and we will do the selecting for you. Our expert Plant Manager knows just what looks right with the correct colour combinations and sizes.


  • 12 high quality potted plants
  • A selection of foreground, midground and background plants.
  • A combination of either all potted plants from the greenhouse OR a mix of potted plants and tissue cultured plants (which allows for the very best selection, range and colours).
  • Great saving.
  • Suitable for aquariums up to 50L.

Once you receive these plants we know you'll be absolutely delighted with the choice and quality. Aqua Essentials has an amazing reputation for quality and we always live up to it. Once you receive your mixed box, it's entirely up to you as to how you plant them in your aquarium. Always remove them from their pots and rockwool and then give them space to grow.

Don't forget your fertilisers when choosing your plants. Without fertilisers, you don't give plants the food they need to grow. We use Neutro Fertilisers in our nursery and we recommend you do too.

Could not believe my eyes, The box arrived with my plants inside and it was NOT a made up box with loads of sticky holding it together, Inside the box we’re layers of pre pressed paper/cardboard and in between them were my plants in moistened plastic sealed bags, The plants themselves were looking just as if they had come out of an aquarium ( perfect ) I would not hesitate to order from these guys again, Well done aqua essentials Jim

Ask a question about this product
Do you provide delivery to Cyprus and do you have in mind when choose plants light parameters


We can ship these plants to Cyprus.

The plants are chosen according to what is surplus to our stock. If you're after specific plants with certain lighting requirements, it's best to purchase those individually.

I am a complete novice, having recently been given a 75L tank with existing fish (3 black ones - look like molly's, 3 tetra, 1 japanese fighting fish, 2 algae eaters and a small speckled brown fish/molly??). The tank has 3 plastic plants which the fish seem happy with but is it easy for a complete beginner to take on plants too or is it hard work? There isn't even any gravel in this tank, just the 3 plants and a hiding bridge for the 2 algae eaters. I want to be realistic about the time I can spend looking after the fish. Tank has Fluval U2 filter and a heating rod. Would like to give the fish a happy life :). Many thanks.


The good thing is keeping plants is easy - we offer a lot of advice and information on our blog and literature we send out with each order.The plants in this mixed box are simple to keep too.

You really do need some gravel as a bare minimum in your tank, not only for your plants to anchor down in, but it also looks a lot nicer than a bare bottom tank :)

So have fun, you'll get huge fulfilment from aquatic plants and you've also come to the best place online for them ;)

Is it possible to have a choice of plants for a tank with normal lighting and no c02? Also, how many varieties of plant are included? Thanks

Yes that's possible. Just leave a comment when checking out. Expect to get 5 species in a mixed box of 10

is your mixed box plants suitable for a discus tank with a water temp of 29c and with co2 injection


You would need the Discus mixed box of plants https://www.aquaessentials.co.uk/discus-mix-10-aquarium-plants-for-a-70l-tank-p-5363.html

I'm thinking about ordering the 70L mixed box. Some of the comments refer to splitting the pots - is this the recommended approach or would it be better long-term to leave the plants in the supplied pots without splitting them? Thanks.


plants should never be left in the pots so always remove them

Is the mixed box safe for tanks with shrimp


Yes - all our plants are 100% safe for use in shrimp tanks.

Hi I have a 65 ltr tank with 8 goldfish and 1 black moor complete with filter and lighting I would like to put plants in the tank but I like the idea of the selection box of ten the only problems I have will the plants be suitable for a cold water set up including the lighting and also will the plants be able to survive with the amount of fish I have in there ... Please help thank you


You'll need to choose plants suitable for cold water tanks. This mixed box is for tropical. Have a look back in the sub categories and you will see which cold water plants we offer.

Hi, we had a cold water tank but lost all the fish after 3 yrs, I want to change to a tropical tank, its 64 litre would this pack of 12 be OK



Hello do all the plants need to be planted in the substrate or do you also proved plants that take there nutrients from water column (meaning I can stick them to hard scape) ? Also will the plants be labelled or identified? Thanks


All in the substrate.

Nealy all plant have labels but if not, it's pretty obvious by the size.

Hello - we are new to fish and based in the UK. We have a 64l (2ft widex1ft deep) tanks with one large piece of driftwood in the middle. We are looking to get some Neon Tetra (perhaps 10 - need to research how many would make them happy and I know they need to be at least 8). I am looking for some low light plants that Neon Tetra would love. Ideally something to grow on the driftwood 'stump' to make it look like a tree with big roots (the stump goes upwards out of the roots which spread around the bottom and quarter way up the tank). WE have sand on the bottom but are happy to put something on top for the plants to root if sand is too fine. Happy to add a few rocks or whatever too. Can you advise on some plants. Want to establish these before adding the fish. Water has been in the tank approximately three weeks now. Heater is not on yet but parameters of the water are good. Can you put together some plants that need low light (we are considering it a 'dark water' tank as want the Tentra to be happy.


This is more of an email than a direct question about this product...

Mixed boxes are suitable for your proposed set up - choose the box suitable to your tank size and add a nutrient rich substrate for every planted tank, along with liquid fertiliser and liquid carbon.

I have a gravel based tank no co2 but use fertiliser, plant growth is slow at present in a hard water area. Looking for a mixed box of plants that would grow. Can you supply this or do I need to do something different to get my plants to thrive? I'm a novice


Use Neutro T and Neutro CO2 fertilisers

Use Neutro Terratabs for placing under each plant

this wil help your mixed box of plants grow

Are these plants snail free


The only plants guarnateeed to be snail free are those grown in a laboratory called Tissue Cultured Plants. So with all other plants, there is no guarantee but the chance is very slim due to the way we hold the plants.

Hello i wont to do a JUNGLE STYLE set up could i get this box with the Premium plants or is the Jungle style box you already do premium plant Thank you


Jungle style is not available in premium style box

Hi I am looking at getting a pack of 12 plant. Is it 12 different plants? Can they be split to spread them out? Do you include carpeting plants? Thanks Sam


It will usually be 6 different plants picked in pairs that consist of 4 foreground 4 middle-ground and 4 background plants. Yes, they can be split to spread them out. carpeting plants are not always picked however if you leave a comment on your order the pickers can try to include carpeting plants for you.
