With an aquascape in mind, we've put together an amazing mixture of 5 premium quality potted aquarium plants that have been chosen by our experienced plant farm team in Holland.
These are definitely not your average plants. Super fresh, well-rooted, strong and in optimum health - this box of plants will contain the very best quality consisting of the 5 listed species below.
We guarantee that you will not find better quality elsewhere.
The pack will contain one of each of the following five species of premium aquarium plants:
- Lobelia cardinalis
- Echinodorus bleheri
- Bacopa amplexicaulis
- Lilaeopsis novea-zealandia
- Microsorium pteropus
Lobelia cardinalis: A beautiful decorative plant with attractive green and pink leaves. It is often used in an aquascape as a row from front to back of the aquarium. Due to its slow growth this plant is also perfect for small aquariums and can be planted either in groups or as solitary plant.
Echinodorus bleheri: A fast growing plant with lustrous green leaves that are lancet shaped. When growing conditions are ideal this Echinodorus can produce one new leaf per week! This plant needs plenty of light and plant fertilizer to achieve best results.
Bacopa amplexicaulis: An easy growing plant with strong leaves and stems. It boasts lush green colour leaves which turn light brown on the edges when light conditions are good. The result is a beautiful contrasting plant.
Lilaeopsis novea-zealandia: An ideal foreground plant that forms a mat of narrow, bright green upright leaves. The submerged form has much smaller leaves than the emerged (above-water) form and typically is a slow growing plant.
Microsorium pteropus: A very hardy, light green plant that is suitable for all types of aquariums. It can be easily attached and grown on wood, stone or aquarium ornaments, since the roots system must be kept above the substrate. It is quite an adaptable plant, being an ideal for Discus aquariums as well as paludariums.
