This listing is for the tissue culture form of Hydrocotyle Verticillata. Tissue cultures are superior to traditional forms of aquarium plants in many ways. They are produced in a completely sterile environment which eliminates the possibility of them carrying pest snails or algae spores. They have a shelf life (before introduction to the aquarium) of several months if properly maintained and they are housed in a nutrient gel until introduced to the aquarium. To introduce a tissue culture plant to the aquarium, simply rinse off as much nutrient gel as possible, then plant as usual. The nutrient gel will not harm your aquarium.


By following these care guidelines, you can ensure that Rotala Mexicana thrives in your aquatic environment, contributing to a visually captivating and healthy aquarium.
