Tissue culture plants are grown in-vitro (literally: in the glass) in a nutrient-rich synthetic growing medium, either liquid or gel, without the presence of any other lifeforms. This guarantees a pest and disease-free specimen, while also providing accuracy throughout the trade.

Tissue culture plants should be removed from the cup as soon as possible. All plants grow on some sort of synthetic growing medium, ranging anywhere from liquid to jelly to firm gel. This should be removed and rinsed off. Gently massage the roots between your fingers until the gel dissolves away. Most plants can be broken up into smaller pieces and spread out in your aquarium. Smaller pieces are easier to plant.

We only ship livestock Monday to Wednesday to avoid weekend delays. Please keep in mind the availability of plants can change quickly as they come in and out of our possession or deteriorate in health, so there could be a delay updating the published availability. We will be in touch if the species you order is not available and you will always have the option to wait or take a substitute or refund. We appreciate your patience as we work to deliver healthy plants to you. 

Please note: We source our plants from several different growers and restock on a rotating basis. We aim to keep each species in stock from at least one supplier but not necessarily more. By default, we will send the freshest plant regardless of which grower you select. If you are particular about which grower supplies your plant, please make this clear in your order notes. There may be a wait for you to receive a plant from a specific grower, depending on when we are able to order from them and their availability.

    Great Replacement for Jungle Val Minus the Runners!

    During my visit to Ala, I sought plant advice from a specialist who recommended Cyperus helferi. Seeing it thrive in another tank made me fall in love with it. Now planted in my tank, it looks amazing – thanks Ala!
