Common Name: Piptospatha Ridleyi

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.  

Piptospatha Ridleyi is a rare type Aroid that belongs to the same family as Bucephalandra, Cryptocorynes, and Homalomena.  It is characterized by the green leaves which contain random markings of various shades of green, sort of like a camouflage pattern.   

Like other Aroids, Piptospatha is a flowering plant that can be grown both submerged or emersed.  It prefers high flow and low to moderate light as too much lighting can cause algae with slow growers. 

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.
