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

Alternanthera reineckii ‘Mini’

This miniature version of the well known Alternanthera is characterized by compact growth and a slower growth rate. It is particularly suitable for small aquariums or as a foreground plant in larger aquascapes.

Ammannia gracilis

A. gracilis is a moderately demanding plant which will not show its full potential unless its requirements are met. Lighting should be moderate. This stem plant prefers mildly acidic, moderately soft water although it is quite adaptable to more extreme water conditions.

Heteranthera zosterifolia “star grass”

Heteranthera zosterifolia is a beautiful stem plant with bright green lanceolate leaves. In its country of origin, Brazil, it usually grows in stangant waters and swampy regions. H. zosterifolia is a relatively undemanding plant and grows well at medium light intensities without additional CO2 fertlisation. It attains its full potential, however, under strong lights and with CO2 fertilisation, then it shows lush, intensive growth and larger leaves. When allowed to grow out of the water it will often get nice blue flowers

Hydrocotyle tripartita

Referred to in the hobby as Hydroctyle sp Japan, its true name is Hydrocotyle tripartita and it originates from South East Asia. The leaves are small and presents a brilliant green colour in your aquarium.

Hygrophila corymbosa ‘stricta’

Hygrophila corymbosa is an undemanding starter plant that originates from Asia. In the aquarium it will spread fast and create bright green, long and wide leaves. It is a fast growing plant that must be pruned frequently. New shoots will spread from the stem and make the plant look bushier. The cuttings can be re-planted in the bottom of the aquarium where new roots form quickly

Hygrophila difformis

Hygrophila difformis from Asia is beautiful and undemanding. Stems becomes 20-30 cm tall and 6-12 cm wide. A plant for beginners which can help create a balance in the aquarium from the start. Its rapid growth helps prevent algae because the plant absorbs a great number of nutrients from the water. The shortage of micronutrients leads to pale leaves, which may be an indication that the aquarium needs fertiliser. In large aquariums its lobed leaves can create a distinctive group.

Hygrophila lancea sp araguaia

Hygrophila lancea from Japan and Hong Kong. The stem becomes 10-20 cm tall and 6-15 cm wide. It has compact, tight-sitting leaves and grows branches easily. Pinching of the stems maintains a bushy look. The colour is reddish brown to purple, promoted by good growth conditions.

Hygrophila pinnatifida

Hygrophila Pinnatifida originates from India and is a relative newcomer to the planted aquarium market, making it a rather exciting and unusual. It obtains brown, patched leaves on the surface with a distinctive burgundy colour underneath.

Hygrophila polysperma

Hygrophila polysperma from South-East Asia is one of the hardiest aquarium plants available. Stems becomes 25-40 cm and 4-8 cm wide. It is particularly good for beginners because it grows in almost all conditions. It normally grows so fast that it is important to prevent it crowding out other plants. The shoots must be pinched out regularly. Leaves lying on the surface form small new plants. Hygrophila polysperma varies considerably in leaf shape and colour, depending to some extent on the light supplied.

Limnophila aquatica

An extremely beautiful aquarium plant circled by light-green and finely branched leaves from South-East Asia. In the right growing conditions with added CO2 and a nutritious bottom this plant grows fast and can become 25-50 cm long and each stem up to 15 cm wide. In good light it forms horizontal side shoots and becomes attractive and bushy. Most decorative when several stems are planted in a small group. In open aquariums it sometimes sends shoots above the water surface, forming small blue flowers.

Limnophila aromatica

Limnophila aromatica can be found growing in swampy or boggy soil in its native region of southeastern Asia. Light is the most important aspect of successful culture with L. aromatica, though its nutrient and carbon needs should not be underestimated. With its amazing coloration, L. aromatica is most effective in the aquascape as a focal point. It shows up particularly well against a dark background or against species with small, bright, light green leaves. This species is extremely effective and appealing, especially if it is well maintained.

Ludwigia arcuata

Ludwigia arcuata is one of the most delicatelooking Ludwigia species. It is widely spread in aquaristics and originates in the southeast of the USA, where it grows creeping or submersed along rivers and on the edges of ponds.
