  • Clover-like carpeting plant
  • Easily separates into multiple plant starts
  • 100% clean with no algae, duckweed, or snails

Marsilea hirsuta is a relatively easy-to-grow foreground plant that will carpet your aquarium like a field of clovers. The rounded leaves are bright green and may develop one to four lobes, depending on the environment. The plant ranges from 0.75–4 inches (2–10 cm) in height and stays shorter in medium to high lighting, which means minimal trimming is needed. 

Once the plant becomes well-established, it propagates by sending out runners that can provide ground cover for an entire aquarium. Provide a nutrient-rich substrate (such as aquatic soil or a well-established, non-soil substrate) or plenty of root tabs for optimal growth.

Healthy and Green

Plant came in very healthy and full. It was a challenge to plant in controsoil because it really wanted to float, but after 2-3 days with a small rock on top it grew roots and anchored itself. Little to no melting after 1.5 weeks!

Alive and well

Mine came in, the roots were a darker brown, and the growing substrate was like water (I thought it was supposed to be more like jelly). I portioned them out and planted them in several tanks, all alive and growing healthy!!

Beautiful lil plants

This is my first step into tissue culture plants. This little cup is slap full of plants! They look very nice, healthy, and lots of roots. I removed the label for pictures, but even that was nice quality for being just a label. I will definitely be ordering other tissue culture plants to try.
