overviewThe Standard Plant Pack comes with the following plants: Micro Sword or Dwarf Hairgrass, Anubias Nana or Anubias Barteri Round Leaf, Java Fern, Red Cryptocoryne or Green Cryptocoryne, Water Sprite, Hornwort, and Cabomba.
The species contained in the Standard Aquarium Plant Pack do not require intense lighting, but should be offered 10 to 12 hours of light per day of 2 to 4 watts per gallon using standard, Power Compact, VHO or T-5 Fluorescents with a spectrum of 5000 to 7000 degrees Kelvin.
Provide this Plant Pack with a few inches of iron rich substrate that contains a moderate grain size. Substrates such as Flourite, EcoComplete or Flora Base work well for planted aquariums and typically do not require supplemental gravel fertilizers. Regular additions of iron and nitrogen in a liquid form will also aid in the plant's long-term growth and coloration.
To plant the Standard Plant Pack, simply follow the acclimation and planting guide and keep in mind the size of the plant at maturity when choosing a location in the aquarium for the individual species. Be sure to properly trim the roots of the new arrivals, and carefully remove any pots and packing materials before planting.
Simply choose the pack below that matches your aquarium for a beautiful and easy to care for aquatic landscape.
