Description

Hemianthus callitrichoides is one of the smallest aquarium plants in the world, and creeps over the bottom with millimetre-sized round leaves. If planted in small clumps a few centimetres apart, it will spread rapidly and cover the bottom like a carpet. Hemianthus callitrichoides is an attractive foreground plant for small aquariums. Found on Cuba west of Havana.

Well packaged very health plants all growing very well

by Peter Wignall on 19/8/2015

Setting up a new tank for the first time after many years.Will be a while before commenting on the plant. However the order was delivered very quickly. It was well packaged.All the ordered plants looked very "fit and well". Not given the fifth star as plant not yet even in the tank! Bit concerned about small nature of the plantlets in the pot but we will wait and see.

Can you tell me know many of these i would need to cover a 0.75m2 area?

 
Staff

1 pot is sufficient for a size of 15x15cm

So you would need 25 pots :)

Does this plant require CO2 and high light?

 
Staff

What would be the best substrate to plant this into? I currently have Colombo Flora-Base Brown but i feel the grains are to large and might need more of a powered substrate?

 
Staff

Tropica powder substrate is best for hemianthus
