    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.

    Japanese Takashi Amano has inspired many aquarium owners to keep the 1-5 cm tall cosmopolitic moss, Riccia fluitans, submerged. It can be kept down by tying it to a stone with a piece of fishing line, but new shoots always grow towards the surface, so it may be necessary to prune it with scissors. Riccia fluitans thrives best with added CO2 and in good growing conditions small oxygen bubbles form on the leaf tips. As a traditional floating plant offers good protection for young fish.

    Growth:   Medium
    Height:  1-5 cm
    Width:   5-10cm
    Light demands:  0.50 Watt per liter
    CO2 demands:   6-14 mg per liter

    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.

    Great Tropica planes as always

    Ordered two tubs from the website and two more from AE through Amazon. All of the pots were packed full of healthy plants and plant growth. I didn’t divide each plant mass up just attached three to rocks and one in the middle “V” of my Java moss covered branch so it grows up and around it. The tank is heavily planted an has fertiliser liquid supplement as well as root plugs. There is also the addition of CO2 injection., standard LED and Plant spectrum LED lighting. The plants are all around 150 to 200% bigger since planting and pearling O2 vigorously. Great plants and service from AE as always. I only ever buy my plants from here.

    As always, arrived in perfect condition. There was enough to create 3 separate clumps attached to driftwood. 3 weeks on and the growth is phenomenal. It has at least tripled in size

    Fantastic all round thank

    We're environmentally friendly

    • 1. Sustainable Packaging

    • 2. Fast Delivery

    • 3. Guarantee

    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.
