Two new tropical plants
Blog post written by Gary | 18 February 2016 | Category: Aquarium plants
We now regularly stock two new easy-to-grow tropical plants from our plant supplier.
The first plant Clinopodium brownei is probably one of the easiest plants to grow, as it can thrive in any water conditions and does not require special care. The unusual appearance of this plant is down to the square stems and round leaves. This is an ideal plant for new aquariums and also newcomers to the hobby who want an easy first plant to grow. Clinopodium brownei will grow to about 30cm high making it ideal as a background to mid-ground plant.
The second plant is Hemianthus callitrichoides, an easy growing foreground plant with light green small leaves. This plant is easy to grow and will cover the floor of the aquarium like a carpet, making it popular for small aquariums and an ideal plant for shrimp aquariums. The maximum height this plant will grow to is 10cm and it will mix easily with small plants from the Cryptocoryne family.
