Riccia Fluitans Tissue Culture
Common Name: Crystalwort
Riccia is a well-recognized floating plant, made popular by the renowned aquascaper Takashi Amano. It can be grown free-floating, where it can grow into thick mats at the surface of the water or attached directly onto driftwood and rocks. When grown attached, it is important to keep the plant trimmed otherwise it will eventually grow higher and become free-floating. This plant can also be grown into a foreground when attached to a stainless steel mesh and placed directly onto the substrate.
- Final results are ultimately dependent upon the conditions this plant is kept in. This is a live plant meaning size, shape and color may vary.
- Do not make drastic changes to the aquarium. Unstable parameters will result in melt and rotting of the aquarium plant.
- 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.
