Description

Glossostigma Elatinoides is an aquascaping plant which is native to Australia and New Zealand and is one of the smallest aquarium plants, growing to only 2-3 cm tall. Therefore, it is an awesome foreground plant, forming a short, dense carpet. It will grows upwards if light is poor. When planting in the aquarium, small clumps of glossostigma should be placed at close intervals a few centimetres apart to help the plants form a carpet quicker. Glossostigma will thrive and form lush green mats when planted in a nutrient-rich substrate and provided with sufficient lighting.

Native Glossostigma Elatinoides, commonly known as "Glosso," is a popular choice for creating lush foreground carpets in aquascapes. It features small, bright green leaves that form dense, low-growing mats, creating a carpet effect that mimics the appearance of a vibrant meadow.

To cultivate Glossostigma successfully, provide it with high lighting and nutrient-rich substrate. CO2 supplementation is highly recommended for optimal growth and carpet development. Regular pruning is necessary to maintain its compact form and prevent it from overshadowing other plants. Take care during planting to ensure that the delicate stems and leaves are not damaged or buried too deeply.
