Staurogyne Repens is a low growing aquatic plant that originates from South America. It's a versatile plant and can be used for the foreground or midground. If given sufficient lighting and nutrients, S. Repens can grow into thick bushes. Individual stems can be planted directly into the substrate.
High lighting and CO2 injection is necessary to keep this plant low growing. Vertical growing thin stalks are a good indicator for lack of lighting while yellowing leaves point to nutrition deficiency and thin leaves indicate lack of CO2. When kept in proper conditions, this plant grows quickly and will require regular trimming.
