All our plants are carefully selected and monitored to ensure quality products are supplied at affordable prices to retailers only. We have a strict policy of no end user sales. All the plants produced in our local greenhouses are grown emersed, meaning the plants are grown fully exposed to air. The roots and substrate are flooded with water, but there is no standing water above the stems and leaves

The reasons for this method of growing are below:

  • Plants grown emersed ship better, they are shipped exposed to air just like they are grown
  • No algae on the leaves, roots or stems
  • Plants are much stronger and robust compared to submersed plants

Eleocharis parvula (Dwarf Hairgrass)

A low-growing carpeting plant that forms runners close to the parent plant. It is prettiest planted in small bunches quite close to each other, which will gradually form a solid carpet. An ideal foreground plant, equally suited to large and small aquariums.

Eleocharis vivipara “Tall Hair Grass”

Eleocharis vivipara is the taller variant of the well recognized Dwarf Hairgrass. This plant is really like an aquatic grass, with thin stalks growing from roots that spread horizontally by sending our runners. Due to its tall height, this plant makes a stunning background plant when grown in large clusters. High lighting and Co2 injection is not always necessary to grow hair grass but it will definitely increase the growth speed and thickness of the foreground. Simply separate larger mats into small portions and plant each an inch or so apart half way into the substrate. After several weeks, the plant will send our runners all around and a lush foreground of grass can be created.

Glossostigma elatinoides “Glosso”

Glossostigma elatinoides from New Zealand is one of the smallest aquarium plants (2-3 cm tall), and thus a good foreground plant. A difficult plant demanding a lot of light.

Hemianthus callitrichoides “HC”

Hemianthus callitrichoides is one of the smallest aquarium plants in the world, and creeps over the bottom with millimetre-sized round leaves. If planted in small clumps a few centimetres apart, it will spread rapidly and cover the bottom like a carpet. Hemianthus callitrichoides is an attractive foreground plant for small aquariums. Found on Cuba west of Havana.

Hemianthus micranthemoides

Hemianthus micranthemoides, also known as Baby Tears or Pearl grass is a nice plant that works well as a foreground plant for large aquariums or mid ground plant for small aquariums. In strong light, this plant will grow close to the substrate creating a great foreground plant. In moderate light, this plant will grow up towards the light creating a taller mid-ground plant

Marsilea hirsuta

Marsilea hirsuta is a carpet-plant from Australia. A fascinating plant, usually delivered with leaves like a four-leaf clover. After a transitional period it develops different types of leaves, possibly a low form with single leaves like a large Glossostigma.

Micranthemum sp ‘monte carlo’

Micranthemum 'Monte Carlo' comes from Argentina. It has compact, round and fresh light green leaves on creeping stalks and creates a fast-growing carpet in the front of the aquarium.
