Golden Nesea, also known as nesaea pedicellata, is a relatively new addition to US aquariums. It originates in West Africa and is distinguished by its beautiful gold and green leaves with red/pink stems. These plants generally belong in the background or midground of your tank, as they can grow vertically to over 12” tall! Place them in bunches to create a golden bush that provides great cover for fish or plant them individually for the occasional highlight.

Care & Maintenance

Golden Nesaea is pretty easy to care for since you don’t need to provide any CO2 supplementation or high lighting. If you want to provide plant supplements to help it grow faster, we recommend adding fertilizer to your substrate such as Thrive Root Zone Tabs.

When placing this plant in your tank, the experts at Modern Aquarium suggest moderate light and nutrition.

  • Minimum Lighting Required: Moderate
  • Temperature Range: 70°-82° F
  • Tank Placement: Midground - Background

    Received big beautiful healthy stems. No hitchhikers. Fantastic color. Nice roots. Planted as a single bush and it makes a lovely focal point. No melt at all. I couldn't be happier with this purchase

    Plants came well packed and very healthy. No dead leaves or folded leaves. Beautiful plants and already sporting its golden color which perfectly contrasted with bright red stem. Looks very beautiful as a background plant and growing already within just a few days. A very good and highly recommended beginners plant which is not too demanding and very colorful.

    This is a beautiful plant. The leaves are slightly more golden (yellow) than in the picture and it adds a stunning contrast to the rest of the greenery in my tank. A week after planting, I'm experiencing some plant melt, which is expected. Overall, a great addition to my tank

    Arrived EXACTLY like the photo. Very green with red stems and lots of roots. They were dipped and added to my aquarium. Now they are loosing a little bit of the green and are kinda yellow but I know its something that has to do with my lighting or water conditions. Mostly because they arrived so healthy. I've changed a few things to see if they bounce back. Still a very beautiful plant.

    The products they sent were top quality. Very healthy, very mature plant. Leaves were all green, the roots were flawless. cant get anything better. This is the 2nd time Ive order a pile of plants from them and in both cases, fantastic service and FANTASTIC quality. I've been aquascaping for years and I've not seen any other provider have such mature and healthy plants as I've seen with MA. Thank you folks, you make my tank look professional. Now the hard part.....keeping them looking nice.
