Staurogyne repens is a beautiful bright green, compact plant with a low, bushy stature and stiff brownish stems. Newly discovered in the aquarium hobby and is scientifically proven to be closely related to Hygrophila. When planted in the aquarium, the most extended upright shoots should be trimmed to encourage new horizontally creeping shoots. Can divide stems and plant into 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.

Origin: Brazil

Growth: Medium

Light demands: Medium

Hardiness: Easy to Moderate

You are buying one potted plant that will cover approx. A 2.5" x 2.5" area if taken out of the pot and separated.

Potted plants are better to start with then "bunched" plants as they have their entire root system intact, which makes them less likely to go into shock when transplanted into your aquarium and spread much faster.

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 plant and shaking in water. Leaving some rock wool will help anchor the plant in your substrate.

To separate the plant into individual plants, grab the stems right above the root and pull gently. The roots should separate if they don't stop pulling and try other stems. Swirling this plant in water will help each plant separate easier. 

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

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.
