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!

Tropica® 1-2-Grow! Elatine hydropiper is a lovely small-leafed plant perfect for use in aquarium foreground plantings. Similar to appearance to Glossostigma elatinoides, Elatine hydropiper also demonstrates a creeping growth habit that lends itself for creating lush green carpets in your aquarium landscape. Bright, green coloration adds vibrancy to your aquascape while the oval shaped leaves add texture and dimension for a wonderful presentation.

Tropica® 1-2-Grow! Elatine hydropiper demonstrates a moderate growth rate, making it easier to maintain than faster-growing species that may require frequent trimmings. Elatine hydropiper is also suitable for use in cold water aquariums as its natural range extends across northern Europe.

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! Elatine hydropiper does well 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 faster growth.
