Staurogyne Repens Live Freshwater Plant - Aquatic Farmer

Staurogyne Repens Live Freshwater Plant - Aquatic Farmer


Item #: JB2251

Shipped by Aquatic Farmer in 3-5 business days

This attractive new variety from Brazil is called Staurogyne repens, a member of the acanthus family. It looks a bit like a miniature Hygrophila but is an outstanding plant for the foreground. It grows very slowly and in good conditions will creep across the substrate. Staurogyne requires strong light and a good supply of nutrients via the substrate. Regularly trimming the shoot tips will encourage the plant to grow lots of new horizontal shoots, and will eventually give you a very nice, thick clump of plants. For aquascaping purposes, these beauties mix well with Hemianthus callitrichoides.
