Gratiola viscidula is a new plant from Tropica which comes from Northern America and is relatively new to the aquatic hobby.It's unsual these days to have new plants arrive in the market, so this is VERY EXCITING!
The somewhat ‘thorny’ appearance of the submersed form makes it very distinct and easily recognizable.
It is quite easy to grow and prefers good light which means if you're a beginner, then this aquarium plant is perfect. By regular trimming it can be kept very low, almost carpeting, but will also present itself well as a fore/mid-ground cushion-plant.
Each stem is approximately 1-2 cm wide and can become 10+ cm tall. The stem willingly branches and spreads giving a very dense appearance to the plant. Most people will use this as a foreground plant and this is what we recommend. Beginner and foreground is a match made in heaven normally ;)
