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.

Echinodorus Tenellus Micro is an interesting carpeting aquarium plant. This particular variety is not as micro as its name implies, but more so refers to the aquatic plant's significantly thinner leaf blades. Echinodorus Tenellus is well-known for its carpeting abilities in planted aquaria and is a great choice for aquarium hobbyists who want a plant that isn't as commonly used as other popular carpet plants. Echinodorus Tenellus Micro features thin blades and a prolific grow rate when planted in optimal conditions. If well cared for, Tenellus Micro will require regular pruning to maintain a polished look in the tank. 

While unecessary, CO2 supply, moderate lighting and a quality dosing regime will produce improved results. This plant is easily propagated by snipping a runner and replanting in quality aquarium soil.
