IMPORTANT: Our aquarium plants may vary in growth forms. Because of this, please understand how to properly transition and acclimate plant(s) into desired form(s). We do our best to thoroughly clean and inspect all plants prior to shipment but cannot guarantee lead bunch or potted plants to be free from snails and/or algae. Not your thing? Please consider purchasing tissue culture aquarium plants! 

Tissue culture plants are cultivated in sterile lab settings ensuring your plant is free from pests, snails and algae! These are young specimen that are grown in emersed forms. Gel should always be removed prior to planting.

LIVE PLANTS ARE SUSCEPTIBLE TO STRESS AND DAMAGE FROM TRANSIT - This may appear in the form of minimal melt, leaf loss, cosmetic damage, etc. Refunds or replacements will not be issued for plants with viable root systems or that die out of our care.
Tonina Fluviatilis is another aquatic plant species in the Tonina aquatic plant family. This specific species is a beautiful ornamental stem plant that is characterized by its bright green color, unique foliage, and slight shimmer when submerged in an planted aquarium tank. Similar to Tonina Belem, Tonina Fluviatilis prefers to be kept in soft water with a slightly acidic aquarium substrate. Belonging to the Eriocaulaceae family, Tonina species are not recommended for the beginner hobbyists and are considered an advanced aquatic plant choice in the planted tank hobby. Additional care requirements include, quality aquarium LED lighting, CO2 injection and an ample supply of macro and micronutrients. 

Because Tonina Fluviatilis's growth is moderate, other aquatic stem plant species have the potential to outgrow and cover the plant, resulting in a lack of light available. Propagation is simple and similar to other aquatic stem plants. You can simply cut off the shoots using clean aquascaping tools and replant the cut portion back into a quality substrate. 

This aquatic plant species requires patience and know-how to keep. If given optimal conditions, this aquatic plant is a beautiful addition to any planted aquarium tank and can most commonly be seen in Dutch Style planted aquariums and even Blackwater Biotopes.
