A rosette plant from Thailand that grows well in high temperature. This is a beautiful and easy to maintain grass like rosette plant that is best used to accentuate the flow of water with it's long soft leaves swaying in water flow. It only gets bushier in the same area and does not send runners that goes all over the place, thus becomes easy to maintain.
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.
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!
