Item specifics

Item Subtype: LIVE Plants Item Type: Plants

Heteranthera zosterifolia


The images that you see is from one of my tanks
and that's how the plant that you get will look like after growing it for a while.
(Please check the videos at the end of the page)

Heteranthera zosterifolia is a very beautiful plant which forms a lot of side shoots and turn quickly to a bushy plant group as you can see in my tank and the videos below

It doesn't require a strong light, but if you have a strong light growth will be quicker ( in my opinion and as I grew them in many of my tanks growth is fast even with low light). Water roots often form on the stem.

This plant is very low demand and doesn't require CO2 or fertilisers, the fish waste is enough as a fertiliser, but if you add CO2 and fertiliser it will grow better ( DIY CO2 is more than enough for this plant, I tried it and it works very well). 

 In open aquariums it forms small blue flowers if some shoots are allowed to spread on the surface (which i have on some of my plants right now).

When trimming the plant , the plants can be re planted again or spread around the tank (depends on how you want to layout your tank) if you want it to be bushier and have more of the plant.

This plant also helps filtering your tank, in one of my tanks I only have a small filter to move the water around, I don't do regular water changes because the plants help cleaning the water from waste and many things( in the wild there are no filtration system so plants filter the water), and my fishes are doing great.

I will send you 5 individual plants ( 5 single plants, "stems"), as shows in the last picture ( I will send you 5 of those). these plants can be different shapes and sizes , they might be 5CM to 20 CM in height  I don't guaranty what size you will be getting,but I always try to send you the best. as I said it grows very fast, so even if you get a small plants it will grow very fast.

I send all my plants in a box (not in an  envelope) to make sure you receive it in the best condition.
