Staurogyne repens Live Freshwater Plant
Staurogyne repens is a green stem plant that resembles Hygrophila. It is an excellent foreground plant that is suitable for a nano aquarium due to its creeping growth and hardy nature. One of the primary reasons why this plant became so popular so quickly is the way it forms a beautiful carpet on the bottom of the tank and grows gradually. Once you plant Staurogyne, you have to avoid moving the substrate, as it will create a dense root system.

About Tissue Cultured Plants
This propagation method involves taking a small piece of plant tissue, often from the tip of a growing shoot or a small segment of a leaf, and cultivating it in a nutrient-rich gel under sterile conditions. This allows for the rapid propagation of plants while minimizing the risk of disease, pest algae, or contamination.
Keep in mind that while tissue cultured plants have numerous benefits, they may require careful acclimation to an aquarium environment once introduced. Following proper care guidelines for each plant will help it acclimate to life fully submerged underwater. A small amount of leaf melting may occur during this transition period. This is a natural response as the plant adjusts to its new environment.
