Hydrocotyle tripartita is a popular aquarium plant known for its unique and attractive appearance. This plant is native to Asia and belongs to the Apiaceae family. It is a stem plant with small, tri-lobed leaves that grow in clusters, giving it a lush and dense appearance. Hydrocotyle tripartita is also commonly known as "Japanese pennywort" or "mermaid weed."

This aquarium plant is a popular choice among aquarists because of its ease of care and ability to thrive in various water conditions. It can be grown in low-light environments and does not require CO2 injection to flourish. However, providing additional nutrients and fertilizers can help it grow faster and denser.

Hydrocotyle tripartita is a versatile plant that can be used for various aquascaping techniques. Its small size makes it ideal for creating intricate carpet layouts or adding a pop of greenery to rock formations. The plant's fast growth rate also makes it an excellent choice for filling in gaps or covering up unsightly equipment.

In addition to its aesthetic benefits, Hydrocotyle tripartita is also known to provide a range of health benefits to aquarium inhabitants. It helps to oxygenate the water, remove excess nutrients, and provide shelter and breeding grounds for small fish and invertebrates.

Overall, Hydrocotyle tripartita is an excellent addition to any aquarium, whether you're a beginner or an experienced aquarist. Its low-maintenance requirements, versatility, and aesthetic appeal make it a popular choice among aquascapers worldwide.

Product details

1. Grown in a laboratory

Tissue Cultured Plants are unique in so much as they are grown in a laboratory and not a greenhouse. As a result of this, a cast iron guarantee is offered which is 100% so snails and no pesticides.

2. How to handle them

They're a bit different from potted plants because they're grown in an agae solution that contains nutrients and hormones to encrougage plants to grow. Some agar is liquid, others are more solid depending on what the growers prefers. Regardless once they arrive with you, acclimatise to room temperature and then rinse under luke warm tap water. Then plant up.

3. Pot sizes

Nearly all TC pots are 5cm in diameter and the pots will range in fullness depending on many factors such as the natural growth speed of the plant and the time the grower has held them for. Sometimes the pots are exceptionally full and sometimes not so full - something we cannot control. But either way, they're still really good value when you look at the overall plant mass.

Your plants will be wrapped with recyclable Honey Comb wrap - sounds cool because it is :). It interlocks which means we don't need to use tape either, reducing our impact on the environment.

Not only is delivery fast with DPD Express but it's also green as they offset all the carbon their vehicles produce. Guilt free delivery which we're very proud of...

We guarantee you'll be happy with your order. But if you're not, please contact us so we can resolve. We are 100% here to help and will always do our best to resolve any issues - that's a promise.
