Lilaeopsis brasiliensis is native to Brazil, growing along shores of streams. Forms low-stature, dense, green foreground lawns when supplied sufficient lighting and CO2. It has compact growth dense grass-like leaves. Common planting technique involves small bunches/clumps inserted into substrate, patterned like the number 5 on a dice, a few centimeters apart. In several months this plant will form foreground carpet when provided with enough CO2 and light. Tolerates low salt concentration in brackish water tanks.
How to plant your tissue culture plants:
Each pot has a diameter of 60mm. All tissue culture plants are free from snails, algae and pesticides. The cups can be kept for a relatively long time before planting (sometimes weeks) meaning you can plant when you are ready. Keep in a cool place, sub 20 degrees and out of direct sunlight. Tissue culture plants are young plants with strong roots and are in much better health than their potted versions. Only open cups before planting to avoid contamination. CO2 and good fertilization will promote healthy growth.
- Remove plant from packaging
- Rinse and wash away any gel/liquid
- Divide plant into 6-8 portions
- Plant directly into your substrate
