Aquatic Plants oxygenate the water to provide shelter for fish and aquarium life while keeping them healthier and your tank looking better. Staurogyne Repens is a low growing aquatic plant that originates from South America. It is a perfect foreground plant that if given sufficient lighting and nutrients can grow into a thick bush of green foliage. Individual stems can be planted directly into the substrate. Tissue culture plants are grown in vitro from a state of the art laboratory specialized in propagating aquatic plants. They provide the best option for those who want to ensure that absolutely zero unwanted pests are introduced into the aquarium. Remove tissue culture gel before planting. Simply wash the gel away or soak the plant in water and squeeze the gel off with your fingers.
