Staurogyne repens originates from the Rio Cristalino in the southern Amazonas of Brazil. A beautiful bright green, compact plant with a low, bushy stature and stiff brownish stems; height and width up to 10 cm. Newly discovered in the aquarium hobby; scientifically proven to be closely related to Hygrophila. When planted in the aquarium, the longest upright shoots should be trimmed to encourage new horizontally creeping shoots. Can divide stems and plant in close groups; if previously grown emergent, the emergent leaves will die off or need removal during planting. Horizontally creeping shoots form a low, compact foreground carpet. Ideal growth in medium to bright light, with supplementation of CO2 and nutrients.

Origin: Brazil

Growth: Medium

Light demands: Medium

Hardiness: Easy to Moderate

You are buying 1 portion, about 1.5" x 1.5" bunch. When planting this plant it would be best to divide the stems and plant them 1/8" a part.

This plant reminds me of anubias petite but even better. I ordered 3 portions and they came in very healthy and good size portions. If you pick the individual stems apart you can get more then 10 stems in each portion. I highly recommend this plant and this seller. They shipped my order the day after I ordered and sent a tracking # as well. Thank you PAC.

Nice ground cover plant
Very cool looking ground cover plant. 2 portions covered approx a 4" x 9" area when split apart and planted evenly. They were very healthy and after less than 2 weeks in my tank are starting to sprout multiple new growth points along the stems.
