Plant Description:

Glossostigma elatinoides is part of the Glossostigma family. They are native to marshes and swamps within Australia and New Zealand. Due to its unique habitat in the wild, this plant can be grown successfully submerged in the aquarium, or emerged in a high humidity terrarium, paludarium, or vivarium. 

Glossostigma was introduced to the aquarium community by Takahashi Amano where it is commonly used to create densely packed carpets in the foreground or grown in tufts attached to rock and driftwood. This plant is adored because of its small size, curly leaves, and bright green color. Glossostigma elatinoides grows best in a high nutrient substrate with that is rich in iron.

In the aquarium, 'Glossostigma elatinoides' is a demanding plant that requires high light, high nutrient, and high CO2 supplementation. Glossostigma is ideal for high-tech aquariums, nano aquariums, shrimp tanks, terrariums, and paludariums.

Although this plant may be a moderately slow grower in the aquarium, with enough time and care it will begin to flourish and spread through runners.
