Plant Sizes

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.

Littorella uniflora is a small, aquatic plant that belongs to the family of plantain. It is native to cool, temperate regions in the Northern Hemisphere and can be found in shallow, freshwater habitats such as ponds, lakes, and slow-moving streams. The plant has adapted to grow in areas with low light intensity, making it an ideal choice for aquarium enthusiasts who want to cultivate a low-maintenance planted tank.

Littorella uniflora has thin, narrow leaves that grow to a maximum length of about 5cm. The leaves are light green and grow in a rosette pattern from a central point. The plant's stems are short and do not branch out, with a single flower emerging from the center of the rosette. The flower is small, measuring only about 5 millimeters in diameter and consists of four white petals.

In aquariums, Littorella uniflora is often used as a foreground or midground plant. Its compact size and slow growth rate make it an ideal plant for small tanks or nano aquariums. It also provides a natural habitat for small fish and invertebrates, providing shelter and a place to spawn. To thrive, Littorella uniflora requires a cool, well-lit environment with good water circulation and a nutrient-rich substrate.

Overall, Littorella uniflora is an excellent choice for aquarium enthusiasts looking for a low-maintenance plant that adds a natural and beautiful touch to their tank. Its adaptability, small size, and attractive appearance make it a popular choice among both beginner and experienced aquarists.

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.

I really tried to like this but for me it just wouldn't anchor and all my inquisitive fish just constantly dug them up. I know its meant to be a slow grower but I gave up replanting them every day and just binned them.

I have had this plant in the aquarium for 3 months. It is an interesting plant, but in a completely unsupplemented low-tech aquarium planted in aquasoil, this is a "slow dying" plant rather than a slow-growing plant. There has been little to no spread, some very modest vertical growth, and plants are now slowly browning/dying off. I have initiated a programme of Neutro T and Neutro CO2 and will see if this can turn this plant around.
