Glossostigma elatinoides ( Potted )

Glossostigma elatinoides from New Zealand is much in demand in Japanese-inspired aquariums. It is one of the smallest aquarium plants (2-3 cm tall), and thus a good foreground plant. A difficult plant demanding a lot of light. Grows upwards if light is poor. Make sure larger plants do not overshadow it. When planting in the aquarium small clumps (approx. 1/8 pot) should be placed at intervals of a few centimetres to help the plants grow together more quickly. CO2 addition and soft water promote growth significantly.


  • Popular, fast-growing and very pretty carpenting plant 
  • Requires intense light and C02 to thrive
  • Frequent trimming is neccersary due to the fast growing
