Glossostigma Elantinoides is another low growing aquatic plant that originates from New Zealand and is highly popular in nature aquarium style planted tanks. It's one of the most recommended foreground plants in the hobby. Glosso has a tendency to grows upwards if the lighting is poor or if other plants or hardscape overshadow it. When planting, small clumps should be placed half an inch apart from each other to help the plants grow together more quickly. CO2 addition and soft water will promote growth significantly.
This plant can grow quickly and will require regular trimming when kept under proper conditions.
