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.

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.

The Phyllanthus fluitans portion is an appealing and attractive floating fern that will grow quickly if given plenty of good light and nutrition. It will naturally multiply and spread on the top of the water. Belonging to the spurge family which primarily consists of desert plants however over the years the Phyllantus fluitans has completely adapted to a different environment.

Ideal for open-top aquariums where the beautiful red colours are shown off (especially with high light). The leaves are fairly small and green on one side and pink/red on the other side.

Note: portion size is rarely as big as the picture. In our experience, this plant often arrives with us from Tropica with less plant mass. So just a heads up if you know what I mean.

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.

Dried up plants

Received the floaters is bad condition they where all nearly died as there was bearly any water in the pot. After a few days they all died.

Sorry to read that. This plant needs a dry environment to flourish. If it's kept in tank with a closed lid, it quickly becomes saturated and dies.

I-2-Dead!

It took a week to reach me, and was a dead mush when I opened it. :-(

Really sorry to read as it would have left us in perfect condition. If plants take 7 days to get to their destination in sub zero temps they won't do well. This is why have been recommending Express Delivery to all customers to avoid delays from Royal Mail. Express Delivery arrives in one working day.

I hope this helps to explain.

Bought these a few times now, and they spread superbly, the gouramis love them, other times I have put them in they seem to die off and get sucked up by the filter.
