Staurogyne Repens

Staurogyne Repensis a low growing plant that is mainly used in the foreground of aquariums. The plant originates from South America. While it is rather easy to care for, without proper lighting it will grow taller. To keep the plant in a tight growth pattern, higher light and the addition of a plant fertilizer is recommended. With the addition of CO2 injection, Staurogyne Repenscan grow rather quickly and will require frequent trimming. Like all stem plants, you can replant the trimmings to start new plants. 

Keep in mind that the coloration, size, and shape of this plant are subject to the conditions the plants are kept.

Use of a high quality planted tank substrate like Brightwell shrimp soil and CO2 injection can help yield better growth.

*Rapid changes in tank parameters can result in the melting of the plant

You will receive one (1) bunch or one (1) potted plant that usually includes 5 stems of this plant. Portion size may vary.

Shrimp and plants

I have been watching their YouTube previews of Flip Aquatics and finally decided to order plants and shrimp from them. The shrimp and plants came in excellent healthy condition. About 2 weeks now, the shrimps is doing very good so far and active. The plants are incredible and I should’ve ordered more. I’m thankful for your professional courtesy response of my request and I 100% recommend this seller.

Staurgyne Reopens

Came in great condition. Some melting during the transition. 21 days in it has great root growth in my 10 gallon and 55 gallon tanks with new side shoots starting. Current growth is with fluval 3.0s no CO2 and ferts twice a week. All tanks have fish, shrimp, and snails. Happy with the plants. ☺️
