Planting Instructions

Potted plants are started in rock wool. To plant, remove as much rock wool as possible. Most of the rock wool will pull off. If you have any left and want it off, shake the plants gently by holding it by the roots and shaking in water. Leaving some rock wool will help anchor the plant in your substrate.

Separate the plant into 1/8" pieces with roots and plant 1/8" to 1/4" apart in your substrate. This will leave room for the plant to propagate and spread. If you want instant gratification, you can plant closer. It will take more plants to fill in the area you want to cover when planting closer.

Only plant the root in your substrate, not any of the plant itself or this can cause melting or shock, for more information on planting and caring for your plants, please go here

Looks Great
Plant came in healthy and green, even with me ordering it in the middle of winter in Wisconsin. I also got a freebie plant with it, a crypt. Hopefully the hydrocotyle will grow and spread nicely.

Very nice, very bushy
The potted portions were big, healthy, and in great shape. I used some Flourish glue and lined a large driftwood with them, and now they have floated a little and created green 'bridges' that my cories and shrimp love to swim through! Great plant.
