Diplidis Diandra (Blood stargrass) Usually grade B

SALE GRADE A
TN_Didiplis_Diadra

Didiplis diandra is a delicate and difficult but also very beautiful aquarium plant with opposite leaves in rows of two. In its' natural habitat of  Northeast America it occupies the banks of rivers and lakes where it develops bothsubmerged, floating and emergent shoots. It does no tresemble any other aquarium plant, and thus it creates avery conspicuous contrast when planted in groups of 3-5shoots in the foreground or in the middle of the aquarium. On the other hand, they should not be planted too close to each other since the lower leaves are then lost due to light deficiency. As a rule of thumb, D.diandra is offered enough light only when the leaf apex is coloured red. D. diandra prefers a fine-grained substrate and CO2 enrichment of the soft and acid water is absolutely necessary to assure optimum growth. D. diandra maybe reproduced by cuttings.

Ludwigia broad - red Repens

TN_lrepens
Larger picture
Ludwigia repensis a beautiful and fast growing aquarium plant. The leaves are olive-green usually with a red lower side. Ludwigia repens thrive even in moderate light though the red colour becomes less intensive. In open aquaria the plant easily grow out of the water where yellow flowers areproduced. It is an easy plant which is propagated by cuttings. Cutting the larger plant also results in a more bushy appearance. Ludwigia repens requires a quite nutrient rich substrate as most other fast growing plants. During the summer-time Ludwigia repens can be grown outdoors in shallow ponds. Often, Ludwigia repens is mistakenly sold for L. natans inthe shops.

Tropica Mastergrow

SALE
tropica_mastergrow

Tropica Master Grow - the most recommended aquarium plant fertilizer by world-renowned freshwater plantists is now available at The Aquatic Store. It is developed and tested in cooperation with Tropica, freshwater biologists and fifty aquarists in Europe. They combined Tropica's 25 years of experience of growing aquarium plants with scientific tests and results under different tank conditions. It is probably the first aquarium plant fertilizer which is constructed from a dynamic model of the pathways of nutrients in the aquarium.
Tropica Master Grow is supplied with an attest of all components in the fertilizer. It is their policy that you as the tank keeper shall know exactly what you offer to your fishes and plants.

The English manual on the bottle is: Dosage: 5 ml per 50 l water each week (10 ml/100 l). Use half this amount for the first four weeks. The dosage can be adjusted later to obtain the desired growth rate (+/- 50%). Dilute the fertilizer before use. Changing the water: We recommend that you change at least 25% of the water every fortnight. Use a smaller dose of fertilizer if you change less of the water! If algae begin growing we recommend increasing the change of water and the addition of several fast growing plants. Tropica Master Grow is phosphate- and nitrate free. Do not expose the container to sunlight. Keep out of the reach of children. Apart from the English manual you will find a manual in German, Danish, French, Spanish, Chinese, Finnish, and Japanese. Tank keepers living in areas with soft water (less than 10 GH) are advised to use only half of the suggested dose. The correct dose is obtained by observing the youngest leaves on the plants. If they appear light green you should increase the dose. Remember: Aquarium plant fertilizers do not help you obtaining a better plant growth if light or other growth conditions are insufficient and limiting growth.
