African Bolbitis fern

The fern Bolbitis heudelotii is a fine and much appreciated aquarium plant with very beautiful transparent leaves. Bolbitis prefers soft water with pH below 7 and it responds to CO2 enrichment of the water with a nice growth. In alkaline water, however, the leaves can develop black spots. It is easily reproduced by adventitious shoots and rhizome cuttings, though adventitious plants occasionly develops, too. It is easily grown on both rocks and roots much like Microsorum. You can greatly enhance the application of this plant -try to take a look at the article Plants cultivated on stones and treeroots!

Aponogeton Crispus Small

Aponogeton crispus is among the most valuable and beautiful aquarium plants. It has translucently bright to dark green leaves which reach a length of 30 cm. The blade is gently crispate - hence the scientific name crispus - and is carried on a30-cm long petiole. Aponogeton crispus prefers a nutrient rich substrate with clay and it adapts quite easily to the environment in most aquaria. The inflorescence is an emergent spike with white or cream coloured flowers which can be artificially pollinated with a fine brush. Alternatively, Aponogeton crispuscan be reproduced by dividing the tuberous rootstock.

In Nature the plant primarily grows in temporal ponds which dry out during the dry season and during this period the Aponogeton crispus lies dormant. However, the plant does not require such a dormancy period in the aquarium.

Crinum calamistratum

Larger picture

Crinum calamistratum is a very graceful bulbous plant with dark-green, very narrow leaves. It forms smaller bulbs than the other Crinum species, and demands more light. In the aquarium, plants that are thriving form a number of small bulbs. It is not eaten by herbivorous fish. It can also be used in brackish aquariums with low salt concentrations.

Crinum natans

Crinum natansdoes have any special requirements as to water or light and it even tolerates weakly brackish water. Be sure,however, to cover only half of the bulb with a substrate poor in nutrients and decomposing organic compounds - if the bulb is covered completely it will going to rot. Crinum natans it is only suitable for large aquaria whereit proves to be a graceful solitary plant. It is a slow growing plant but once it has attained its full size the wavy leaves will float on the surface - 'natans' means floating! The plant is less light demanding and hasbroader leaves than Crinum calamistratum. Older individuals willingly set adventitious bulbs, and these new bulbs are the easiest way of propagating the plant though propagation from seeds is quite easy, too. Crinum natans is 'cichlid-safe' plant because the fish do not like the very sturdy fibres of the leaves. See also fish-proof plants from Tropica Aquarium Plants.

Crinum Thaianum Water Onion

Crinum thaianum is abulbous plant with very long strap-shaped leaves, 1 to 3cm wide. Some individuals are able to attain a leaf length of 4 m. It is an unpretentious plant apart fromthe requirements to space. Crinum thaianum benefits from a nutrient rich substrate but the bulb is vulnerable to rot. This can be avoided by cutting off the longest roots before planting as they are most subjected to rotting. It is reproduced by adventitious bulbs onlarge individuals. Crinum thaianum is not eaten byfishes which makes it particularly suitable for cichlids aquariums. See also fish-proof plants from Tropica Aquarium Plants.

Cryptocoryne pontederiifolia RARE

Cryptocoryne pontederiifolia can form slightly pink leaves under water, and in good growing conditions it grows very large. It has characteristically horizontal leaves on a long leaf stem. It rarely suffers from so-called cryptocoryne disease.

Dwarf Hairgrass Potted High Quality

Larger picture
Eleocharis acicularis is a small grass-like plant with filamentous leave. It creates a fine dense carpet at favourable growth condition. E. acicularis is quite sturdy and hardy with a wide temperature tolerance. Thus, it is suitable as pond plant, too, because it usually survives the wintertime. The plant prefers a fine-grained and nutrient rich substrate and the growth benefits greatly from CO2 enrichment. There are more than 100 species of Eleocharis sp.. They are found all over the world and many of them are very hard to distinguish from each other. Unfortunately, only a few species are suitable for aquarium purposes.

E. acicularis is very suitable as foreground plant because the water form rarely exceeds 15 cm. It spreads by means of runners but the horizontal growth is nevertheless quite slow. Therefore, we recommend dividing the pot into 10-12 or even smaller plants before planting them spaced 2 to 5 cm apart. In any case, the E. acicularis looks best when planted in-groups. In small aquaria, the plant looks great when planted in-groups into a carpet of for example Glossostigma elatinoides. The plant requires much less attention than the fast-growing foreground plants, which requires repeated trimming of the runners with long internodes.

A relatively new employment of E. acicularis is using it as an anchor for Riccia fluitans when the latter is grown submerged after the Armano-style. To begin with, the buoyant Riccia carpet is kept from floating to the surface by sprinkling with pebbles. Thereafter individual filaments of E. acicularis are planted in between the Riccia-carpet and E. acicularis will then keep Riccia in position.
