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 Lуѕіmасhіа Nummulаrіа
Lysimachia nummulаrіа can adapt to many submerged environments, and also humid tropical environments. The egg-shaped leaves make it ideal for midground or background placement. Golden creeping Jenny is excellent for accenting aquascapes, due to its unique golden hue.
When properly maintained, the moneywort aquarium plant can be used successfully as foreground or background plant. Lysimachia can also be handy as an NO3 indicator plant, as its growth becomes stunted when important nutrients, such as nitrate, are lacking. Meeting the plant’s nitrate needs help it produce robust, brightly colored leaves.
Propagating Lysimachia nummulаrіа is a simple process. Simply plant cuttings from the original plant. Because the vegetation can become invasive, be sure to trim the trailing stems regularly.
