Common Name: S. Repens

Staurogyne Repens is a low growing aquatic plant that originates from South America. The leaves are small, spade shaped, and light green in color. S. Repens grows compactly and if given sufficient lighting and nutrients can grow into a thick bush of green foliage. Each stem will only grow up a few inches in height. Due to its growth pattern, S. repens is commonly used as a foreground or midground plant.

S. repens is an adaptable plant that can be grown in both submerged and emersed environments. Be sure to allow adequate time for the plants to transition. High lighting and Co2 injection is necessary to keep this plant low growing.  Vertical growing thin stalks are an indication of lack of lighting while yellowing leaves can mean nutrition deficiency.  Thin leaves can also hint at a lack of Co2.  This plant can grow quickly and require regular trimming when kept under proper conditions. Trimmings can be replanted as a form of propagation.
