  • Hornwort, also known as Coontail, has sturdy, layered hair-like foliage that helps oxygenate and clarify the water as well as keep algae growth to a minimum. It is found free-floating worldwide, in moving and still waters, or loosely anchored in muddy bottoms. The tips will shorten and thicken in fall, before falling off and settling on the pond floor to spend the winter as buds. In spring, these buds grow to repopulate the pond. Hornwort leaves are dark green and grow from a 1/2 to 1-1/2 inches long on stems that can reach 24 inches in length. They may be planted or just left to float in the pond as they absorb nutrients through its stems and don't root. Approximate Purchase Size: 6" to 8"
  • Anubias Nana (Anubias barteri var. nana) is one of the most popular aquarium plants due to its tolerance to a wide range of aquarium conditions. This plant can be grown fully submersed under water. We like to use this plant on branching driftwood or along the foreground attached to stones. It is especially great for shrimp tanks, community aquariums, and many styles of aquarium aquascapes. For optimal growth, tie the plant to wood or rocks. SubstrateSource potted plants are grown in 2-inch slotted or mesh plastic pots. The pots are made out of recycled plastic. Potted plants are grown without soil in rockwool media. The rockwool media allows the plants to grow in a clean, soil-free environment, ready to ship. To prepare your plant for the aquarium, first gently remove the pot and peel away the rockwool media. Tie the Anubias to an anchor (soaked driftwood, stone, or other decoration item. Note: Never release plant species into the wild. Before discarding excess growth, allow the plants to fully dry. Photo depicts sample plant, not the actual plant you will receive. Some discoloration may occur during shipping due to the absence of light during transit.
  • Java moss is one of the easiest to grow, and hardy, aquarium plants around. It belongs to the Hypnaceae family and is native to Southeast Asia. It is very common in moist tropical climates and grows on rocks, river banks and tree trunks. Due to its low requirements regarding water quality and lighting, it is perhaps the most common moss amongst freshwater aquarists and is widely available both in shops and online. It is commonly used for aquascaping and can produce beautiful results. It also has many other benefits such as providing protection for eggs and fry, improving tank health and providing food for breeding fish.  
    Care Level: Very easy
     Growth Rate: Low to Bright
     Temperature: 15 to 30C (59-86F)
     PH: 5.0 to 8.0
  • The Kleiner Bar Sword is a hybrid between Echinodorus barthii and Echinodorus uruguayensis, which gives the adult leaves their red coloration. If the conditions are not ideal, the plant grows more slowly, a bit smaller, and the deep red coloration of the leaves will turn more rust in color. This species is amphibious and will grow either submersed or partially submersed. Requiring little attention after the initial planting, the Kleiner Bar Sword is a great plant for beginners. The Kleiner Bar Sword requires moderate to high lighting, approximately 3 watts per gallon provided by full spectrum (5000-7000K) bulbs. The temperature of the water should be between 72°-82°F, with an alkalinity of 3-8 dKH and a neutral pH. The Kleiner Bar Sword propagates by rhizomes or adventitious shoots that grow off of leaves. A prolific plant under most circumstances, the development of a new leaf once a week is not uncommon. Approximate Purchase Size: Small: 6" to 8"
  • Anacharis is a vigorous grower with branchlets that easily break off from the parent plant to form new plants. Anacharis feeds primarily through its stems. The plant can produce roots to anchor itself, but it is not necessary that it be planted. It can simply be weighted and dropped into the aquarium or pond since soil is not really necessary for their survival.
  • The Dwarf Sagittaria, also known as Hudson Sagittaria and Ribbon Wapato, is a great aquatic plant for those just beginning to keep live plants in their aquariums. This fast growing plant resembles grass and can grow above the water level. Its unstemmed leaves will grow to form dense clusters. It is an amphibious plant, and will grow either partially or fully submersed.The Dwarf Sagittaria is a completely undemanding plant that can withstand hard water as well as water with a surplus of organic substances. Not sensitive to temperature change, it can thrive in very poor planting substrate if given a generous amount of light. This aside, the proper water conditions would have a temperature of 72°-82°F, an alkalinity of 3-8 dKH and a pH of 6.5-7.5. Provide the plant with moderate lighting of 2 or more watts per gallon of full spectrum (5000-7000K) lighting. The Dwarf Sagittaria will propagate by producing multiple runners, and may need to be replaced with new Dwarf Sagittaria from time to time. It's best to use this plant as a background plant. Approximate Shipping Size: Bare Root 2" to 4"
  • The Echinodorus ‘Barthii’ is a decorative and beautiful plant for large aquariums. It becomes 25-50 cm tall and the whole rosette 20-30 cm wide. The leaves change colour from dark-red in the youngest leaves to dark-green in the oldest. The colour develops well when the light intensity is high and there are sufficient micro-nutrients in the aquarium. A nutritious bottom and CO2 addition promote growth. This plant takes a lot of light from plants underneath, so it must be pruned occasionally. It used to be sold as "Double Red".
  • Hygrophila pinnatifida is a beautiful and interesting stem plant from India. Its leaves contain brown/green tone on the top side with a distinctive burgundy red underneath. Bottom stems could produce runners that help to develop new plants quickly and the tops may be trimmed to promote more compact growth. Red coloring becomes more intense under strong light and elevated CO2. Growth is moderate to fast once they adapt the tank environment and may require often trimming. It is the combination of the leaf shape and color that gives this stem plant such a distinctive and unique look and has aquascapers so excited. Some people have described the leaves as looking fern like.
  • Alternanthera reineckii var. 'roseafolia' is a very decorative "red" plant. Alternanthera reineckii has a bronze color on top of the leaf and the deep purple colored underside of the leaf. Alternanthera reineckii offers a nice contrast to the mostly green plants in an aquarium. Although most red aquarium plants are somewhat difficult to grow in an aquarium, Alternanthera reineckii is relatively easy. With adequate light and fertilizer Alternanthera reineckii grows vigorously and with good color and adding CO2 will make these plants bright red.
  • Amazon Sword is a very popular aquatic plant among the freshwater hobbyists due to its hardiness and gorgeous green coloration. It is native to Brazil and in nature it occurs in lakes, river, swamps and wet ground of the Amazon basin where it is found growing submersed in 50 to 100 cm deep stagnant to slow-flowing water. At present, it is now widely cultivated on farms around the world. This plant can be placed in the midground or background, depending on its height. It can grow partially submersed condition and makes it a good addition to terrariums as well as the traditional planted tank. It is easy to grow and it produces lush green foliage that looks quite attractive in the aquarium.
