Description

Heteranthera zosterifolia from South America is an extremely beautiful plant which forms a lot of side shoots and thus quickly forms a bushy plant group. Stems can become 30-50 cm tall and 6-12 cm wide. In strong light growth is intensive, and the plant must be pruned before it becomes so compact that no light reaches the lower leaves. Water roots often form on the stem. In open aquariums it forms small blue flowers if some shoots are allowed to spread on the surface.

Tropica 1-2-Grow Tissue Culture

  • Our collection of Tropica tissue culture aquarium plants are very young plants derived from very small pieces of mother plants & manufactured in sterile laboratory conditions, producing unique, healthy & high quality plants enclosed in a cup with a fertile gel.
  • Tropica 1-2-Grow! In Vitro plants are guaranteed free of pesticides, algae spores, rockwool, snails and other unwanted organisms and therefore are totally harmless for sensitive shrimp and fish.
  • A single in vitro plant can be divided into small portions to cover a large area.
  • Plants are compact from the start, provided proper fertilizer and CO2, you will experience dense and beautiful growth.
  • Just don't open the plant cup to peek inside until you are ready to plant it in your tank, you don't want to contaminate it's environment!

To plant, carefully remove plant from T/C cup, wash the jelly away from the plant, use sharp scissors to divide into several small portions and then plant portions into the substrate carefully with tweezers. You can also affix small portions to lava rock and push the rock carefully into the substrate.

If you select a shipping method that takes longer than three days to arrive to your door, then your plants will likely arrive in poor, unusable condition. GLA is not responsible for plants that arrive dead if you select a shipping method that takes longer than three days to arrive. Therefore, please do not select Free Shipping or UPS ground shipping during checkout. We recommend you select USPS Priority Mail, UPS Next Day Air, UPS 2 day, or UPS 3 Day select to ensure that your plants arrive in healthy usable condition.

Heteranthera Zosterifolia tissue cultures

Exceptional quality plants as usual, green, beautiful, and fast growing right out of the cup. I had previously ordered Staurogyne Repens TC from GLA and, through no fault of their own, one of the cups arrived damaged. Marco promptly replied to my customer service inquiry and included replacements in this order free of additional charge. I run GLA regulators on both of my tanks, and anyone who has worked with this company knows that their product quality and customer service are absolutely top of the line. Thank you again for your support of my hobby, and I look forward to seeing what new products you offer in the future.
