  • Tropica 1-2Grow! Bacopa Caroliniana

    Bacopa caroliniana originates from US and has been used as an aquarium plant for many years. Stems become 10-30 cm long and 3-4 cm wide. Apart from relatively good light it makes few demands. Its slow growth rate makes it one of the few stem plants that do not need much attention. Like most stem plants, it is most decorative when planted in small groups. Easy to propagate by cuttings; take a side shoot and plant it in the bottom.

  • Tropica 1-2Grow! Cryptocoryne undulatus ‘Red’

    This red version of Cryptocoryne undulata grows wild in rivers of Sri Lanka.

    It is an easy plant, tolerant of very different conditions in an aquarium. Appearance of the plant will partially depend on these conditions.

    Low levels of light and nutrients will produce a relatively tall, greenish-brown plant of slow growth. Higher levels of light and nutrition, combined with added CO2, will make the plant grow considerably faster producing shorter leaves of a reddish-brown colour.

  • Tropica 1-2Grow! Elatine hydropiper

    The creeping growth of this stem-plant makes it highly attractive for creating carpets in the aquarium. The very small leaf size makes it an obvious choice for nano-tanks. Its fresh green colour compliments wood, rocks and other plants extraordinary well and has made the plant increasingly popular. The growth of Elatine hydropiper is quite similar to Hemianthus callitrichoides ‘Cuba’ and Glossostigma elatinoides but is considerably slower, making it easier to maintain.

  • Tropica 1-2Grow! Eleocharis acicularis ‘Mini’

Plant the mini-version in small portions covering a larger area. In short time, a dense carpet will be obtained. Needs light to perform optimal, however, it is one of the most secure species for craeting a carpet – and a minimum of maintenance since leaves stays small (3-5 cm). Suitable for nano-aquariums.

  • Tropica 1-2Grow! Eriocaulon cinereum

    Aquarium plant from tissue culture in closed cup.

    The genus Eriocaulon is usually adapted to soft water. Eriocaulon cinereum is more tolerant than most and will thrive in medium-hard water. Soft water will promote overall health.
    This is a quite small, very narrow-leaved and almost cushion-growing plant, that demands good supply of light and CO2 to develop.
    The plant usually flowers very willingly after planting in the aquarium and the numerous flower stems give a unique appearance.
    Flowering easily drains the energy of the plant, but given the right conditions, it will gather new energy and grow from basis after some time.

  • Tropica 1-2Grow! Glossostigma elatinoides

    Glossostigma elatinoides from New Zealand is much in demand in Japanese-inspired aquariums. It is one of the smallest aquarium plants (2-3 cm tall), 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.

  • Tropica 1-2Grow! Gratiola viscidula

    Gratiola viscidula originates from Northern America and is relatively new to the aquatic hobby. 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. 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.

  • Tropica 1-2Grow! Helanthium ‘Quadricostatus’

    Echinodorus ‘Quadricostatus’ from South America has characteristic light-green leaves 10-15 cm long which form a good contrast to the darker aquarium plants. It is most beautiful when planted in groups, each roset becoming 15-20 cm wide. In good conditions it produces runners which spread over the bottom. Very light leaves are a sign of a shortage of micro-nutrients. There is some confusion about the name of this plant, and it has been sold as Echinodorus bolivianus var. magdalenensis.

  • Tropica 1-2Grow! Heteranthera zosterifolia

    Heteranthera zosterifolia from South America is an extremely beautiful plant which forms a lot of side shoots and thus quickly forms a bushy plant group. Stems can become 30-50 cm tall and 6-12 cm wide. In strong light growth is intensive, and the plant must be pruned before it becomes so compact that no light reaches the lower leaves. Water roots often form on the stem. In open aquariums it forms small blue flowers if some shoots are allowed to spread on the surface.
