Glossostigma elatinoides Tissue Culture

Glossostigma elatinoides Tissue Culture

Glossostigma is a very attractive bright green creeping plant with small elongated leaves. It is ideal for creating a carpet or lawn in the foreground of an aquarium. 

It is highly prized in Japanese-inspired aquariums.

Glossostigma is fast-growing and will spread to create a groundcover.

Loves good conditions and tech to grow the very best. CO2 injection and soft water may enhance growth.

What is special about me? Glossostigma has become one of the world's most popular foreground plants. In the wild it grows submerged and emersed in bogs, flood plains and riverbanks in Australia and New Zealand.

In the Pisces Laboratory, Aquarium plants are cultivated using tissue-culture techniques in small pots of nutrient-rich, sterile, agar jelly. These little pots pack a lot of goodness in a small space and you will find multiple plants in each container. 

Before planting in your aquarium, gently wash off the jelly and carefully split the plants into a few pieces if desired.
