Glossostigma elatinoides


Glossostigma elatinoides is much in demand in Japanese-inspired aquariums. It is one of the smallest aquarium plants, and thus a good foreground plant. A difficult plant demanding a lot of light. Grows upwards if light is poor. Make sure larger plants do not overshadow it. When planting in the aquarium small clumps (approx. 1/8 pot) should be placed at intervals of a few centimetres to help the plants grow together more quickly. CO2 addition and soft water promote growth significantly.

In order to achieve strong shoots the substrate should be nutrient rich and light intensity high. Specimens should be planted individually spaced apart and will then grow in. while it may be painstaking to plant them individually, it is well worth the effort..

 This looks great in mass planting take advantage of the multiple buy.
