Red Root Floater (Phyllanthus Fluitans) Live Fresh Water Aquarium Plant Floating 5"X 5"
Phyllanthus fluitans originates from the Amazon River Basin. Although coming from a family dominated by desert plants, this plant has adapted to become a floating plant in a very humid environment. P. fluitans is currently produced only by one major nursery, Tropica. However, this species is a little more common in the trade due to its fast growth when conditions are good. It sometimes goes by the name red root floater. P. fluitans is not too difficult to grow given enough light and nutrients. Lighting should be intense (shoot for around 3 watts per gallon or more). CO2 is unnecessary. Nitrate and phosphate should be kept above zero (10 ppm or more and 1 ppm or more respectively), as this plant, like most floating plants, prefers rich conditions. Heavy iron and micronutrient dosing is essential for the health of this plant; without enough iron, this plant will fail to thrive. When conditions are good, this floating plant will produce slightly reddish leaves with small white flowers. This small floating plant is very easy to prune, as you simply have to skim off any excess from the water's surface. However, due to its fast growth, the aquarist will have to remove excess plants quite frequently to prevent it from overshadowing plants below it. P. fluitans is most suited to open top tanks where its beautiful foliage and tiny flowers can be most appreciated. The hairy, red root system can add a touch of color to the upper levels of an aquascape as well.

Pond Pots are the ideal water gardening container, giving your aquatic plants a natural home in which to grow. Made of a porous, breathable polypropylene fabric, Pond Pots permit water to pass, allowing needed oxygen to reach the plant's roots. This water flow promotes healthy root growth. Soil doesn't leak out of Pond Pots, helping the water to stay clear. Pond Pots' pliable fabric conforms to sloping or uneven pond floors and remains tough and durable for years. Pond Pots' flexibility allows plants to be placed between rocks and other form-fitting areas. The fabric can be folded down to adjust planter height as needed. Pond Pots are safer for fish and other aquatic life since there are no cracked or sharp edges.

One Well Rooted Cyperus Alternifolius Plants (Umbrella Papyrus, Umbrella Sedge, Umbrella Palm) The number of shoot will increase over time as new shoots will surface and grow. Cyperus Papyrus, commonly known as Papyrus or Papyrus Sedge is native to Egypt. The aquatic plant grows in full sun, in wet swamps and on lake margins throughout Africa, Madagascar and the Mediterranean countries. Cyperus papyrus growth is very fast. It can grow up to 12 feet high. Each stem is topped by a dense cluster of thin, bright green, thread-like stems around 10 to 30 cm (4 to 10 in) in length. It is a tropical plant that requires high humidity and relatively warm temperatures. The base of the pot should always soak in water. The plant was used in paper-making in Ancient Egypt. Hardiness zone: 9-11 Once rooted, transfer seedlings to shallow water in direct sun. Submerge entire pot slowly and at a slight angle to minimize soil loss. If the weather is not past frost season, create an indoor water spot using a plastic tub. Feed cyperus plants regularly with a fertilizer designed for water plants. Stop fertilizing when moved inside for winter. Prune spent growth regularly to keep dying plant matter out of your water feature. Decaying matter can cause many problems to your mini-ecosystem. Move plants indoors for winter months or cold spells. Plants left in water and full sun will continue to grow year-round. Leaving your plant in low light and kept moist will keep it dormant until next growing season.
12 Aquatic Water Lily Seeds (Mixed Colors Lotus Plant)
Brand: Aquaticseed Inc.
The lotus flower is revered in Asia and appreciated the world around for its beauty and simplicity. There is a long history of cultivating lotus plants. Images of lotus flowers can be seen in Egyptian, Hindu, Chinese and other archaeological sites. The plant grows from underwater rhizomes, a type of root. Long stems rise from them to the surface of ponds and lakes. There, round flat leaves fan out to collect sunlight. Other stems produce flowers and, eventually, seeds. Lotus seeds remain viable for extremely long periods of time. Dormant seeds found within Chinese tombs thousands of years old have been successfully germinated. The seeds are easy to germinate.
