Hydrocotyle Japan – Hydrocotyle tripartita
Hydrocotyle Japan is the popular name of this plant. It is a variant of Hydrocotyle tripartita from South-East Asia. It is characterized by fast, compact growth and small, intense green leaves on vertical stems.
Hydrocotyle Japan is carpet-forming and its compact growth can be promoted by physically pressing the carpet with your hand when maintaining your aquarium.
You are buying one pot of Hydrocotyle Japan that will cover approx. a 2.5″ x 2.5″ area if taken out of the pot and separated.
To plant, remove as much rock wool as possible. Most of the rock wool will pull off. If you have any left and want it off, shake the plants gently by holding them by the plant and shaking them in water. Leaving some rock wool will help anchor the plant in your substrate.
To separate the Hydrocotyle sp. Japan into individual plants, grab the stems right above the root, and pull gently. The roots should separate if they don’t stop pulling and try other stems. Swirling this plant in water will help each plant separate easier.
Only plant the root in your substrate, not any of the plant itself, or this can cause melting or shock, for more information on planting and caring for your plants, please go here HERE
