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.

About Lоbеlіа Cаrdіnаlіѕ
To grow the cardinal flower plant most successfully, provide a CO2 injection and plenty of micronutrient doses. The plant’s slow and dwarfed growth make it an excellent choice for mid-ground placement. In an aquarium display, it can add great density and color. For a Dutch street aquascaping effect, arrange the flowers into uniform rows and prune them neatly.
Propagating Lоbеlіа саrdіnаlіѕ is easy. The plant grows side shoots that you can pull off and replant. Because it’s a stem plant, you can also cut them in half and replant the tops, and new stems will emerge from the bottoms.
