Type: In-Vitro Aquatic Plants
Coral moss, or Mini Pellia, is thick and compact with an intense, deep green color. Riccardia is especially suited for attaching to branches and stones, but it will not cling on by itself over time like other mosses, so it needs to be anchored well. The moss grows slowly and is easily overgrown by algae or other mosses. Riccardia requires more light than other moss species.

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.
