Part Number:egeriananas

Egeria najas also known as Anacharis narrow leaf is very similar to the very popular common Anacharis,  Egeria densa,  but has  narrow leaves that sprout from a more delicate thin stalk. The leaves may curl downward slightly at the ends.  These plants can be planted in the substrate or can remain floating at the surface.

Just like Common Anacharis  it makes an ideal aquatic plant for beginners as it is one of the easier plants to keep. It is a terrific oxygenating plant and will do wonders for the inhabitants of your aquarium by adding oxgen and by using up excess nitrates that could harm your inhabitants.

Planting Instructions

Stem plants are usually cuttings of plants that normally don't come with roots. This is how stem plants are sold in the aquatic plant industry although at times my stem plants may come with roots because I have been growing them out. All stem plants come with a plant weight that holds the plant in place and is safe for your tank. 

To plant just let the weight lay on your substrate and the stems will grow roots throughout your substrate. You can also plant the tips, about 1/4" in your substrate if you prefer.

Super fast growing beauty!
This bunch arrived healthy and green, and there was no detectable melt after adding it to my aquarium. This plant grows VERY fast - the stems grow about 1" a day in my low tech, low/medium light tank - and is a lovely addition to my planted nano tank. Because my tank is so small, I trim these every week during the water change, but in a larger tank less maintenance would be needed. In fact, these grow so quickly they would be an excellent choice of plant to economically create a lush aquascape in very little time. Mine are just sitting on the gravel substrate with the plant weight keeping it in place - very easy, no special care. My fish (CPDs) love swimming between the stems and my dwarf shrimps love to graze, hide and climb on it. The plant is beautiful and I enjoy having it in my tank. It has become one of my favorite plants!

Mrs.
I was worried about ordering plants when the temperatures were in the low 20's but my plants arrived safe and sound and in perfect condition, wrapped in insulation. I couldn't be happier with my order. The plants are healthy and just lovely! I can't wait to see them take off in my tank.
