Common Name: Lawn Marsh Pennywort

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.  

Hydrocotyle Sibthorpioides is characterized by its clover-like leaves which can grow into compact bushes of green.  Its similar to Hydrocotyle Japan except the leaves are rounder.  This plant is versatile and can be used in the foreground, midground or background.  It is undemanding and grows fast, often out-competing and overgrowing the tank if left untrimmed.  By frequently trimming new growth and using high light with CO2, the plant can stay low growing and create a carpeting effect over the foreground.  

Propagate by trimming stems and replanting on pulling apart dense clumps and splitting the roots. New shoots can be trimmed anywhere along the stem which allows the plant to grow thicker and more compact. 

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.
