"We like to do things differently, and we like to do things that make sense. Many shops hold their aquatic plants in holding tanks full of water. This may seem the obvious way to hold plants, however, this is not how they are produced. Therefore, what we like to do is hold our plants emersed. What’s required is a humid environment, nutrient dosing at the roots & light. As the plants are out of water, there is no worry of algae. And this opens up a whole new way of keeping plants. The end result is simply brilliant! The quality is right up there."
Aquarium Plant Collections (online exclusive)
We also have a range of Plant Collections offering great value for money throughout. They are particularly good for those who are unsure as to how many plants they will need to fill their tank or which plants to go for. The 'Jungle Plant Collections' are designed for different sized aquariums, containing only easy care plants, and therefore a good starting point if you are new to planted aquariums. All our plant collections are well thought out and offer a good variety of plants.
You can also purchase plants individually to make up your own selection. We also offer a variety of plants growing on wood and rock which takes the hassle out of attaching them yourself.
Tissue Culture Plants
The future of aquarium plants lies with tissue cultured plants (also known as In Vitro plants). These plants are produced in a lab under sterile conditions. They are free from algae, snails, pests and disease. Great for taking your aquascaping one step further with super healthy plants. There are many varieties not found in our regular potted range. They also transport really well, and when you get them you don't have to plant them straight away. Keep the lid sealed and they will last 1-2 weeks in a cool place until your ready for planting.
Aquarium Plant Food
Our favourite aquarium plant food is supplied by The Nutrient Company, offering excellent quality and great value nutrients for your plants compared to other brands. If you have a fully planted aquarium, we advise using both TNC Complete and TNC Carbon for healthy plant growth. The bigger the bottle, the better the value!
For superb plant growth we stock a range of CO2 Equipment. CO2 is the backbone to aquatic plant growth which can be limited in an enclosed aquarium environment. It is therefore advisable to supplement CO2 in the aquarium to support healthy plant growth. You will find all our CO2 equipment very well priced, making it more affordable than ever before. For more information on how to set up a CO2 system for your aquarium, see here.
