    The Micro Sword, sometimes called Copragrass, is a great plant for beginners and seasoned aquarium keepers alike. An attractive bottom covering plant with long light green grass-like leaves, it will spread out in thick carpet of grass. The Micro Sword will make an excellent spawning medium, as well as a great foreground plant. This species is amphibious, and will thrive either partially or fully submersed. The Micro Sword can be housed in water from 70°-83°F, with a neutral pH. This species appreciates a soft substrate that is rich in fertilizer. Provide the plant with moderate lighting of 2 watts per gallon or more, in the color temperature of 5000 to 7000 Kelvin. The Micro Sword propagates from the many runners that will branch off the root area. It grows exceptionally fast, and will quickly cover the bottom of the tank.
  • 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.

  • 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"
  • Moneywort is a popular stem plant that grows quickly and has exceptionally bright green leaves. Moneywort can thrive even in poorly lit aquariums. In the right conditions, it is a very aggressive grower, meaning it provides excellent waste removal from the water column. You get 1 bunch with  6 or more stems that are 6 to 12 inches in length, making this a great midground-background plant.
  • 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.
  • Ludwigia repens, or Water Primrose, is a beautiful freshwater aquarium plant that originates from the tropical North and Central American waters. It is an amphibious plant that will grow either partially or fully submersed. In its fully submersed form, its spade-shaped leaves range in color from dark green to brownish-red. The top of the leaves are typically olive green in color, whereas the undersides are reddish-brown to deep red. The vibrancy of this plant depends greatly on the amount of light it receives. When poorly illuminated, the colors will fade. The Ludwigia repens makes a good mid-ground plant in the average aquarium, or even placed as a background in the smaller aquarium. They do require a high light intensity of 3 to 5 watts per gallon of full spectrum (5000-7000K) light. This plant does prefer a nuetral pH and moderately soft water, and will accept a wide temperature range. Reproduction occurs during the warm season when the plant is fully mature. At this time, it will develop small, vibrant yellow flowers above the water's surface. Shortly thereafter, seeds will develope and drop to the substrate, where they will begin to grow into a new plant. To propogate the Ludwigia repens, simply cut branches or the top of the plant, and plant the stem into the substrate. Be sure to remove the leaves from the last node on the bottom of the stem to insure proper root growth. The Ludwigia repens benefits from regular addtions of CO2, iron rich fertilizers, and trace elements. Approximate Shipping Size: Bare Root. 6" to 8"
  • 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.
  • Water Wisteria (Hygrophilia difformis) is a surprisingly attractive, yet hardy and undemanding plant that is ideal for the larger aquarium. Its variance in appearance depending on the light and temperature conditions in which it grows gives this plant an air of mystery. In low light, the leaves will be wider and lobed in appearance, while in higher lighting, they will be thin and feather-like. It is very light green in color and will add texture and depth to any tank. Cuttings from this plant, including just a single leaf, can grow into an entire new plant. When it fully matures, its leaves provide extensive foliage that is very suitable for the background of the aquarium. It can also be weighted and placed on its side to “carpet” the foreground of the aquarium as roots will grow out of nearly any part of the plant. Water Wisteria is one of the easier aquarium plants to maintain. It can grow as tall as 20 inches when planted in its typical position, so it is best used in the background of the aquarium. It will grow upward as well as outward, and one bunch can easily reach a width of 10 inches, so it is best used in larger aquaria unless it is pruned very regularly. Water Wisteria does not require CO2 supplementation or overly high lighting, but it usually will not display the “forked” appearance in its leaves in low lighting. Due to the somewhat thin width of its leaves, Water Wisteria is not suitable for aquariums with destructive animals such as crayfish, large cichlids, or goldfish. Like most plants, Water Wisteria will benefit from supplementation such as Seachem Flourish, Flourish Excel, Nitrogen and other plant supplements. Care Guidelines: Temperature: 72° - 82° F (22° - 28° C) pH: 6.5-7.5 Lighting: Moderate Origin: Indigenous to Indian subcontinent, cultivated in US nurseries Aquarium Placement: Background, foreground when properly modified Care: Easy
