Care & Maintenance for Staurogyne Repens
Staurogyne Repens is a small, undemanding and hardy plant. It is not particularly fussy about the substrate but will grow better, thicker and faster in rich substrate. It does not require strong light but like most plants it grows more compact and bushier when stronger light is provided.
- Minimum Lighting Required: Low
- Temperature Range: 68-82°F
- Tank Placement: Foreground-Midground
Staurogyne Repens looks great when planted in bunches. When allowed to spread, the plant will form thick carpet across the aquarium’s substrate. If some of the leaves shoot too far upright for your liking, you can trim them using aquascaping scissors and "train" or encourage the plant to produce new horizontal shoots.
Staurogyne Repens is also available bareroot.

The Staurogyne Repens I ordered was well-packaged and arrived in good shape. The Plant was smaller than that pictured but still very attractive and dark green. After a few Days, I removed the Plant from the Pot and replanted in my Aquarium. It seems to be very happy. During inspection, I did not see any "Hitch-Hikers".
Shipping was fast and it came nicely packaged in great condition.
Great Condition when arrived! Very well packed!
I ordered 2 pots of the S Repens and was disappointed by the amount of stems in the pots and how lush they looked, especially compared to the picture. With that being said, the plants are healthy and already growing quickly in my tank. Overall, I'm happy and would order again.
