3 PLANT COMBO #1 - Beginner Aquarium Plants: Hornwort, Duckweed, and Willow Moss
This combo pack includes three varieties of live aquatic plants that are suitable for beginners! Live plants make a beautiful upgrade over plastic plants, which can look tacky and make your tank appear unnatural. Real plants are great for giving your aquarium a natural look, and they can be combined with driftwood or natural-colored gravel to replicate a natural-looking ecosystem.
Each of these plants is fast-growing and grows by using waste and pollutants in the water, making them an extremely effective part of your biological filtration. Keeping these plants in your tank may reduce or even eliminate the need for water changes!
This pack includes the following:
1. Hornwort (3 inch or longer stems): a fast-growing stem plant with needle-like leaves. It easily grows 1 inch or so per week if adequate nutrients are available.
2. Duckweed (250+ pods): a fast-growing floating plant made up of fronds that resemble tiny lily pads. The fronds reproduce very quickly and provide shade and cover with their floating roots.
3. Willow Moss (enough moss to make a 5 by 5 square inch mat, so LOTS of moss!): a fast growing leafy moss. This moss attaches to surfaces and grows into a bushy mat, making it very effective for providing cover for aquatic animals.
All three of these plants are easy to grow and are fine with low-light setups, although more light will encourage faster and denser growth. The plants will grow enough to fill a 30 gallon aquarium in two months or less. They grow by absorbing waste (including ammonia and nitrates) from the water, which means they reduce pollutants that cause smelly or cloudy water and make for happier fish and invertebrates!
