Staurogyne Repens Potted Plant


Staurogyne repens is a small plant that quickly became a favorite of aquascapers after its introduction at Interzoo in 2008. The plant settles in very quickly in a nutrient rich substrate with supplemental CO2 and spreads beautifully to make a dense ground cover. It requires a regular nutrient supply or it is likely to stunt and suddenly lose all its leaves. The speed at which this happens sometimes catches inexperienced aquatic gardeners by surprise. So make sure you fertilize regularly! Staurogyne repens also requires regular trimming, or it will start to grow taller when it has filled out the space available.
