A rare stem plant rarely found in the UK. A highly attractive plant with arrow shaped leaves. Once it is established in the water and with high lighting it's leaves will turn red in colour. It looks a bit like mini bamboo. It grows exceedingly well in CO2 injected tanks with strong lighting.

Ideally plant in small group for the most decorative effect. Keep it well trimmed and fertilised and this plant will happily grow.

Plant looked good on arrival. However when I checked with Aqua I was not told that injected CO2 is a requirement for it to do well. I also did not read the description properly so share the mistake! It's not looking too good at the moment after 3 weeks as I only add liquid carbon and not CO2.

Doesn't respond to 8000Kelvin tubes.

These get eaten by Tiger Barbs and not recommend a tank with Barbs.

A beautiful plant. Whilst I love this and was going to order more, it appears to be a favourite for my Sturisomas as well and they've demolished it haha.

Lovely looking plant. Very well packaged and extremely fresh and healthy looking. Gorgeous colours. Very rare and special plant.

Beautiful plant and the new growth is stunning with little bright pink shoots.

Will this plant last in my angel tank


that totally depends on your fertilisers, lighting and water change you offer the plants.
