    Staurogyne Repens

    Price:  £3.79

    Staurogyne Repens is a fresh green, compact and hardy plant for the foreground of the aquarium and it was found in River Rio Cristalino in the southern Amazonas. Its nearest relative in the aquaristic is Hygrophila but Staurogyne is different with its marked compact, low and bushy stature (5-10 cm) and small green leaves (each stem is 3.4 cm wide). During planting in the aquarium, the longest upright shoots should be cut off and new horizontally creeping shoots will soon form from the plant basis and gradually colonize the gravel creating a stunning carpet. This beauty miixes well with Hemianthus Callitrichoides. A Stunning plant (Another of my personal favourites).
