Staurogyne Repens is a low-growing aquatic plant that originates from South America. Typically shortened to S. Repens, Staurogyne Repens is a popular midground aquatic plant choice in planted tanks for its naturally bushy, compact growth pattern and bright green color. This aquarium plant has a smaller leaf size making it a suitable choice for nano-sized aquariums. These factors make Staurogyne Repens an all around popular plant for aquascaping. Staurogyne Repens grows respective to the environment it is planted in so it is best to be mindful of conditions such as lighting, nutrients and CO2 injection. Depending on the aquarium, Staurogyne Repens has also been used as a foreground aquarium plant. However, this application will require more frequent pruning to maintain the desired look!

We recommend medium to high lighting to keep this plant low-growing and bushy. CO2 injection is also favorable to promote quicker, more robust growth. Propagation is simple and can be done by trimming along the stems and replanting into a quality, nutrient-dense aquarium soil.
