With an aquascape in mind, we've put together a superb mixture of potted aquarium plants that has been chosen by our experienced Plant Manager that would suit a South American Biotope aquascape. 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.

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.


  • quality potted plants for a South American Biotope.
  • A selection of foreground, midground and background plants.
  • Superb value for money.
  • Great saving.

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.

Ordered the 50L selection about 3 weeks. All plants arrived in great condition and are doing really well with plenty of new growth already. I received a great mix of 12 plants – selection of back-, mid- and fore-ground plants and a nice variety of colours (reds, dark green, bright green) fitting the South American theme. Would definitely recommend and buy again in future.

I ordered this box for my new aquarium a couple of months ago, and I'm very glad I did. The selection was great, exactly as described, and the box arrived promptly and the plants were in great condition. I would recommend this box to anyone setting up a South American themed tank.
