Staurogyne repens is a fresh green, compact and hardy plant for the foreground of the aquarium and it was found in River Rio Cristalino in the southern Amazonas. Its nearest relative in the aquaristic is Hygrophila but Staurogyne is different with its marked compact, low and bushy stature (5-10 cm) and small green leaves (each stem is 3.4 cm wide). During planting in the aquarium, the longest upright shoots should be cut off and new horizontally creeping shoots will soon form from the plant basis and gradually colonize the gravel. 

How to plant your tissue culture plants:
  1. Remove plant from packaging
  2. Rinse and wash away any gel/liquid
  3. Divide plant into 6-8 portions
  4. Plant directly into your substrate

My first experience with tissue culture. The plants looked very healthy on arrival. Made a mistake by separating all the little plants but be that as it may they have held in the substrate not disturbed by the tank population and best of all showing growth after just two days. Very happy.

Plants received in excellent condition. Well packaged, prompt delivery, good communications. All planted and looking good. Can't wait to see how they settle in and spread out over the substrate.

Lovely little foreground plant that has grown really well. Looks healthier than the usual Staurogyne Repens. Worth trying.
