Homalomena Sp Sekadau South UNS Tissue Culture
Common Name: Homalomena Sekadau South
Homalomena Sekadau is a flowering plant belonging to the same family as Bucephalandra. It's considered a rare plant and you're not likely going to see it at your local fish store. Like Bucephalandra, its an easy plant to care for and can be grown both submerged and emersed. Homalomena don't require that much lighting to thrive. They are slow growers and too much light can cause algae growth on the leaves, much like Anubias and Buce. To plant, simply attach the rhizome to rock or wood and place it into your aquarium. Propagate by cutting along the rhizome.
Tissue culture plants are grown in vitro from a state of the art laboratory specialized in propagating aquatic plants. They provide the best option for those who want to ensure that absolutely zero unwanted pests are introduced into the aquarium.
Remove tissue culture gel before planting. Simply wash the gel away or soak the plant in water and squeeze the gel off with your fingers.
