Ammania sp. ‘Bonsai’ is best described as a compact, moderate growing version of Bacopa Caroliniana. Plant in small groups and trim often. Cuttings may be re-planted in the group to achieve a more dense group or carpet. At high the tip of the stems may become reddish, at lower light the leaves will become larger and the plant less compact. Ammania sp. ‘Bonsai’ is particularly suitable for nano-aquariums.
All plants are cultivated specially in our laboratories - in a special jelly. They are free of snails, algae and pesticides - totally harmless to fish and shrimp. These unique cups can be kept for a relatively long time (days to weeks) before planting and they are absolutely easier to prepare before planting. They are young plants with strong roots compared to their potted counterparts. Please only open the cups before planting - in order to avoid early contamination with mould. Wash the plants completely free from jelly before use. Plant using tweezers. Remember that soft water, good lighting and CO2 injection usually promote better growth and hea
