Arrived in excellent condition and easy to plant, although the plant is small it quickly grows and a big plus you can split the plant into 6 pieces or less so your actually getting more than one plant for the price of one.

I have had a few plants recently along with other items. I must say they are very nice plants and are coming along nicely after just a week. Very helpful people and I would happily purchase from again. ????

Ask a question about this product
I have a fish tank 60 cm in length 31cm width, I will have some small rocks and a piece of wood in the tank, but I want a carpet effect on the ground, how many pots of this plant would I need? I was thinking perhaps 4 or more but you do not have more than 2 in stock please advise on quantities and stock levels please. Thank you.


You would need about 10 pots.

More due every Wednesday

would this carpet in ada aquasoil without c02


slowly yes. Would benefit from liquid carbon like Neutro CO2

Hi, will this plant anchor in gravel, or will it float to the surface? I know someone who had this plant before and it kept uprooting and floating to the surface from their gravel substrate. Thanks


plants only uproot IF not pushed in deep enough OR fish dig them up
