Isoetes (quillwort)


The order Isoetales includes the modern "quillwort", the living genus, Isoetes with about 70 species, which has a worldwide distribution, and very similar fossils (Isoetites a mid-Cretaceous plant resembling modern Isoetes).  These are small, often aquatic plants with a short stem and elongate leaves.  These are highly reduced plants that have effectively "telescoped" the body into a small corm-like stem that lacks vegetative leaves (all the leaves are fertile sporophylls). Fossil forms are sometimes placed in the modern genus Isoetes. Like the more primitive Selaginellales, the Isoetales are heterosporous, producing two kinds of spore.

Limnophia aromatica RARE


There are several varieties of this plant. The variety grown by Tropica is said to come from Malaysia. It is characterised by its narrow green leaves, which are purple underneath. Like most other red plants, the colour depends on a supply of intensive light. CO2 addition promotes growth significantly, and it also thrives in hard water. Limnophilla aromatica is easy to propagate by cuttings.

Author: Tropica

Limnophia aromatica produces a distinct smell from this plants stem.  Will also flower.

Quite rare plant that is similar to eustralis stellata.

Stunning green with red highlights.

Ludwigia arcuata (Needle leaf Ludwigia )

Ludwigia arcuatais a beautiful plant most suitable for open aquaria where it willingly grows above the water. The emergent leaves are much smaller than the larger lanceolate and opposed aquatic leaves. The stem and the leaves are in both cases reddish coloured though most intensively in the emergent form. It often flowers with small golden-yellow flowersand it is easily propagated from the seeds as well asfrom cuttings. Ludwigia arcuata shows a strong seasonal rhythm and the lower leaves are shed during the winter. Also, cuttings root very poorly during wintertime. The plant prefers a rather rich substrate to grow optimally - a mixture of unwashed sand and mud/clay inthe ratio of 10:1 is fine. Ludwigia arcuata requires high light whereas water hardness does not seem to make much difference in plant performance.

Ludwigia broad - red Repens

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.

  • These aquarium plants look better in groups of 12 or more.
  •  New growth is a light green while the older growth is tends to be darker.  

Nesaea crassicaulis

Nesaea crassicaulis is a beautiful and highly recommended aquarium plant, although it makes relatively high demands on the light. It has red-brown, cognac-coloured leaves. Grows best in soft and slightly acidic water. Make sure the lower leaves get sufficient light, otherwise they turn black and fall off. This plant is similar to Amania species and is often mistaken for them. But in the aquarium it can be recognised by its yellow-green stems. Easy to propagate by side shoots or cuttings, which can be cut off and planted in the bottom.
