Description:

Staurogyne repens in a very special aquarium plant. The characteristic that makes this plant unique is that very few stem plants have it’s creeping or mat-forming habit. Because of this characteristic, S. repens can be attached to rocks or wood and used in areas of the aquarium that other stem plants cannot. Slow to medium growth makes this an easy plant to care for.
