Ancharis, Egeria densa

Planting Instructions

Stem plants are usually cuttings of plants that generally don't come with roots. This is how stem plants are sold in the aquatic plant industry, although many 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.

Please go here for more information on planting.

Great plant, Great place to buy plants
Everytime I buy this plant from PAC it comes so nice and green. I have bought this plant from other vendors and it never looks as good as it does through PAC. A great plant. Easy, and grows quick.

Best Ancharis
This is the best Ancharis I have ever bought. Arrived after 3 days in transit green as can be and about 15" long. I bought 4 bunches and received 5. Fantastic surprise. Thanks Planted Aquariums Central!

First online live purchase and I couldn't be more impressed by the amount of care put into raising these plants. Every plant I received was lush, green, and lively.. the packaging really saved them in the long run. Defiantly planning on buying more soon!
