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 Amazons. Its nearest relative in the aquaristic is Hygrophila but Staurogyne
is different with its marked compact, low and bushy stature, and small green leaves. 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 colonise the gravel.
