Common Name: Mermaid Weed, Marsh Mermaid Weed

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.  

This is a unique stem plant with saw-toothed edges on the leaves.  Colors can range from a bright solid red to a lighter golden green coloration depending on lighting and nutrients.  The leaves turn more red when dosing iron supplements in your tank.   

This plant acts as a great background coverage, especially in a Dutch style aquascape where the unique leaves can add a great contrast to other plants.  

Propagation is simple and straightforward like other stem plants.  Simply cut along the stem and replant the cuttings. 

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.
