Roundleaf Lindernia (Lindernia rotundifolia) Tissue Culture
Roundleaf Lindernia is an extraordinarily fast-growng midgroud plant that is very hardy and perfect for beginners and experts alike! It will grow emersed or submersed, so it is also great for paludariums!
Roundleaf Lindernia (Lindernia rotundifolia) is an extremely verstile plant that is ideal for the midground of the aquarium. It has very few special requirements beyond clean, nutrient-rich water and moderate lighting. It will thrive and grow very quickly even in low-tech setups. It will also grow very well (and even flower) when emersed, so it can also be an excellent paludarium plant.
Care for Roundleaf Lindernia is very simple. It grows quickly when provided with nutrient rich soil and moderate lighting. It will grow at a slower pace under low lighting. Like most stem plants, it can be trimmed and cuttings can be replanted. In the case of this prolific plant, regular pruning will likely be necessary to avoid overgrowth. Like many plants, this plant will respond significantly to CO2.
This listing is for the tissue culture form of Roundleaf Lindernia. 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.
