Explore your creativity with a clean, modern way to plant your aquarium landscape. We are pleased to introduce Tropica® 1•2•Grow! laboratory-cultivated plants guaranteed to be free from snails, algae, and pesticides.

Tropica® 1•2•Grow! streamlines the aquascaping process, delivering high quality plants in convenient cups. Simply rinse the gel growing media off when removing plant from cup, divide and plant accordingly to your aquascape design, and then watch it grow!

Telanthera Plant (Alternanthera reineckii var 'roseafolia') adds a flash of flowing color to freshwater aquarium mid- or backgrounds, exhibiting rich reds, pinks and greens. Its wavy flat leaves move in the current and entrance the eye. A native to South American lakes, streams, and rivers, Telanthera Plant makes an ideal addition to South American community aquariums. Strong lighting is key to achieving the most vibrant coloration possible.

Tropica® 1•2•Grow! laboratory-cultivated plants are ideally suited for planted aquarium hobbyists of all skill levels interested in setting up an exquisite planted aquarium with delicate fish or a lush landscape in miniature showcasing ornamental freshwater shrimp.

Smartly portioned cups beautifully accommodate small and medium sized aquariums. Also great for "touching up" larger established planted aquariums with open areas or invigorating your aquascape with new growth. Dense, compact planting in each cup responds to fertilization and CO2 supplementation resulting in luxurious growth.

Tropica® 1•2•Grow! Alternanthera reineckii will do best when provided full spectrum (5000°K-7000°K) lighting of high intensity. Ideal growing conditions with high light conditions, CO2 supplementation, and balanced fertilization will stimulate fast growth. Take advantage of this characteristic and trim Alternanthera reineckii accordingly for use as a foreground or mid-ground plant in your aquarium landscape design. Plant a large number of stem in a group to achieve a dramatic visual effect.
