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!

Marsilea hirsuta is a fascinating plant that provides complex texture to your aquarium landscape with its diverse and variable leaf forms. Interestingly, Marsilea hirsuta is usually delivered with leaves like a four-leaf clover. After a transitional period, Marsilea hirsuta develops different types of leaves, possibly a low form with single leaves like a large Glossostigma, or alternatively develops two, three or four-lobed leaves of varying height depending on the growing conditions. Whichever form the plant adopts, it develops runners and spreads rapidly to fill empty spaces, making Marsilea hirsuta a great aquarium foreground plant.

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! Marsilea hirsuta does well when provided full spectrum (5000°K-7000°K) lighting of low intensity. Ideal growing conditions with higher light conditions, CO2 supplementation, and balanced fertilization will stimulate faster growth. Good light conditions will encourage a tight, low-growing habit with a neat and tidy appearance.
