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.

Alternanthera Ocipus is a beautiful aquarium stem plant that offers beautiful pops of color to a planted tank. Like other Alternanthera species, AR Ocipus can grow fully submerged as well as in marginal conditions when sufficient moisture is available. It can be assumed that AR Ocipus is a hybrid of other Alternanthera species and is suitable in the mid to background areas of the aquarium. Colors can vary and are highly dependent on aquarium conditions. When provided with optimal conditions, hues are intensified and include a range of pinks, purples, magentas and more. CO2 injection, quality aquarium plant fertilizer, nutritious substrate and moderate lighting are a good starting point.
