Hemianthus callitrichoides " Cuba " Size of plants 2 - 4 cm
Aquarium Carpet Plant
Hemianthus callitrichoides Cuba is surely one of the smallest and cutest Carpet AquariumPlants in the aquarium hobby. It is less demanding than Glossostigma or hairgrass. It spreads through extended shoots under gravel, under water. Little flowers bloom in case of emersed growth. Give it fresh water through regular water change as it is generally found near streams, meaning moving water. It does not really need high light and can be easily termed as a medium light plant. Just plant them on a fertile bed and do regular water change and keep light within 0.4-0.5 W/L.
Hemianthus callitrichoides " Cuba " is one of the best and easiest foreground plants. It quickly forms a low carpet and the ornamental effect is highly improved by the oxygen bubbles which easily form on the leaves.
" Cuba " is one of the smallest aquarium plants in the world, and creeps over the bottom of the aquarium with millimetre-sized round leaves. If planted in small clumps a few centimetres apart, it will spread rapidly and cover the bottom like a carpet. Hemianthus Cuba is an attractive foreground plant for small and big aquariums, and makes few demands.
Note: We send plants in one or two clumps. You can plant the whole clump in one place or you can divide them and plant each stem separately.
