  1. Bacopa Australis

    Bacopa australis was discovered in southern Brazil (australis = southern ), and it does not come from Australia, as might otherwise be assumed from its name. Stems become 10-30cm tall and 2-4cm wide. Like other Bacopa species, Bacopa australis is also easy to grow in an aquarium.
    £5.25
  2. Eleocharis Acicularis 'Mini' ( 1-2-Grow )

    Eleocharis Acicularis 'Mini' has even lower groath than the common Eleocharis Parvula and was was given to Tropica by Thomas Barr from US. Plant the mini version in small portions covering a large area. In a short time, a dense carpet will be obtained. Needs light to perform optimal, however, it is one of the most secure species for creating a carpet- and minimum of maintenance since leaves stay small.
    £5.75
  3. Eleocharis Parvula

    A low-growing Eleocharis that forms runners close to the parent plant. It is prettiest planted in small bunches quite close to each other, which will gradually form a solid mass of plants. An ideal foreground plant.
    £4.99
  4. Glossostigma Elantinoides

    Glossostigma Elantinoides from New Zealand is much in demand in Japanese-inspired aquariums. It is one of the smallest aquarium plants (2-3cm tall), and thus a good foreground plant. A difficult plant demanding a lot of light. Grows upwards if light is poor. Make sure that larger plants do not over shadow it,
    £5.50
  5. Gratiola Viscidula ( 1-2-Grow )

    Gratiola Viscidula is relatively new to the aquatic hobby. The somewhat 'thorny' appearance of the submersed form makes it very distinct and recognisable. It is easy to grow and prefers good light. By regular trimming it can be kept very low, almost carpeting, but will also present itself well as a fore/mid ground cushion plant.
    £5.75
  6. Helanthium Quadricostatus ( 1-2-Grow )

    Echinodorus ‘Quadricostatus’ from South America has characteristic light-green leaves 10-15 cm long which form a good contrast to the darker aquarium plants. It is most beautiful when planted in groups, each roset becoming 15-20 cm wide. In good conditions it produces runners which spread over the bottom. Very light leaves are a sign of a shortage of micro-nutrients. There is some confusion about the name of this plant, and it has been sold as Echinodorus bolivianus var. magdalenensis. Previously known as Echinodorus 'Quadricostatus'.
    £5.75
  7. Helanthium Tenellum 'Green' ( 1-2-Grow )

    Previously named Echinodorus tenellus 'Green'. This small rosulate plant will easily make a 5-10 cm high carpet when the light is good and the bottom layer nutritious. Even at an intense lightlevel this variety remains fresh green unlike the usual, more reddish, Echinodorus tenellus. An easy and quite undemanding foreground plant.
    £5.75
  8. Hemianthus Callitichoides 'Cuba' ( 1-2-Grow )

    Hemianthus Callitichoides 'Cuba' is one of the smallest aquarium plants in the world, and creeps over the bottom with millimetre-sized round leaves. If planted in small clumps a few cm apart, it will spread rapidly and cover the bottom like a carpet. Found in Cuba west of Havana.
    £5.75
  9. Hemianthus Callitrichoides 'Cuba'

    Hemianthus callitichoides is one of the smallest aquarium plants in the world, and creeps over the bottom with millimetre-sized round leaves. If planted in small clumps a few cm apart, it will spread rapidly and cover the bottom like a carpet.
    £5.75
  10. Hydrocotyle Tripartita

    Hydrocotyle sp 'Japan' is the popular name of the plant in different plant forms. It is a variant of Hydrocotyle tripartite from South-East Asia. It is characterised by fast, compact growth and small, intensive green leaves on vertical stems.
