Planting Instructions

Mats that have plants attached should be planted by burying just the bottom of the mat in your substrate. The top of the mat with the plant should not be buried at all. The best way to do this is to carefully move the mat back and forth as you push it down in your substrate. The weight of the mat itself and having it in your substrate should hold it in place. If it does not stay in place, you can add plant weights to the bottom of the mat by inserting them into the mat. Click HERE to view the weights.

I received this mat of dwarf Penny Wort and was amazed at how full and green the entire mat was. It was instant gratification when I put it in the tank. It was so full that you couldn't even see the mat. What a deal. I have never seen such healthy plants like this. Shipped all the way from AZ to Alaska and didn't even look like it was ever out of the tank. Great packing job. Thank you PAC!!

Grows Well, Despite Goldfish loving it
My goldfish are over a decade old, and pretty big, with big appetites for fresh food... i.e. plants. Dwarf pennywort grows well, even in my aquarium with less than High Light. It almost grows well enough that the goldfish don't entirely wipe it out. Additionally, it seems as if the mats of dwarf pennywort reduce the nitrates and ammonia which previously were turning some of my plants black around the edges of their leaves. I like Glossostigma, too, but the goldfish create a rather Autumn look to their tank when they dig into it: scads of little leaves start flying everywhere, and that loads the filter all too quickly. My goldfish dive into the dwarf pennywort, as well, but it's leaves are larger and appear to be more strongly attached to the plants. Just to be clear my goldfish are pretty big now. The male is close to six inches, not counting his tail. The female, though smaller, is a much more avid uprooter of plants. I sometimes feel as if she thinks she needs to prepare a salad for them to eat... If you want a quick, lasting green look for your tank, this is an excellent choice. For me, it works better than baby tears or glossostigma.
