Plant Sizes

Just wanted to give you a heads up that the image of the plant you'll be receiving is just an example of what you can expect. Each plant is unique and may vary in size and shape, so it won't be an exact match to the photo. If we provide a size guide, keep in mind that it's just an estimate and that plants can vary in size depending on the time of year.

Our Delivery Promise to you

If you choose Express Delivery, we will replace any plants that are damaged due to delays. Express Delivery is a fast, trackable, and reliable option with a one hour delivery window. It also ensures that the plants will arrive in the same condition as when they left our facility. If you choose a different postage option, such as Tracked 24 or Tracked 48, you will not be covered for any damages due to delays and will assume the risk yourself if the plants do not arrive in good condition. Express Delivery includes an insurance policy, which may cost more but provides added peace of mind.



If you order before 4pm we dispatch the same working day (Mon-Fri). Shipping prices start at £4.99 depending on the speed of delivery required.

Originating from America, the Hydrocotyle verticillata with its toadstool like leaves, is a fairly simple aquarium plant to care for. In terms of size the more light intensity you have the smaller and more compact this plant will become. It isn't very fussy about CO2 or fertilisation, although good CO2 and nutrients will improve growth.

When first planting, separate the runners to include one leaf, plant into the substrate and watch it spread. Prune by cutting unwanted runners with sharp scissors. Hydrocotyle verticillata is definitely a foreground plant, but also suitable for garden ponds. If the soil is kept moist, you may even use it as an indoor plant. 

Can also be used as a floating plant.

Such a beautiful little plant when it arrived. I had high hopes of it. However, I have failed it in some way, as the leaves are now yellow and it is not happy. I use the Neutro Combo, and the water temperature is 22 deg, I thought I'd read up all the advice about it, but there must be something I forgot. Very disappointed.

Nice plant, arrived in good condition but found it a bit difficult to split into smaller bunches, stems tangled together. Semms to be growing well now it's in the aquarium

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...
