Staurogyne Repens

Staurogyne Repens is a low growing aquatic plant that originates from South America.  It is a perfect foreground plant that if given sufficient lighting and nutrients can grow into a thick bush of green foliage.  Individual stems can be planted directly into the substrate.

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. 

This plant can grow submerged or emersed in dry start aquariums and Wabi Kusa.
