Aquatic Tissue Culture Plants
Tissue culture plants are propagated in sterile packages where they grow in non-toxic, germ- and pest-free environments. Complete Aquatic Systems owns and operates our own tissue culture lab thus giving us total control over the varieties and quantities produced. Another benefit to having our own lab is that we don't have any middlemen to deal with.
Limnophila heterophylla aquarium plants have finely pinnate leaves when submersed, closely resembling L. indica and L. sessiliflora. The plants are recognized by their green tufts and long, white roots in the nodes of the stems. Limnophila heterophylla is an undemanding plant that is excellent for novice aquarists. It’s often used instead of Cabomba, which requires more light.
