Tropica – Elatine hydropiper
Arizona Aquatic Nurseries offers Tropica Aquarium Plants!
Aquarium plant from tissue culture in closed cup.
Cup size: is 2.5” Diameter x 1.75” Tall
1-2-Grow! in cups are young plants free from snails, algae and pesticides, which makes them completely safe for delicate shrimps and fish. These plants are also given water harvested from natural rain collected from the roof of the greenhouses.
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 color 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.
