Staurogyne Repens

Staurogyne Repens originates from South America. It grows small green leaves, grows compact and low to the substrate. It is an ideal plant for the foreground areas of the aquarium.

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 potted.

    Much smaller bunches than expected and not many roots. Only about 3-4 small cuttings per bunch. But they were in great condition and the leaves are a nice green color.

    Next time I will get tissue culture. They will be easier to plant.

    Tall plants
    Posted by Rachel on 29 Sep 2020

    These plants were taller than I expected them to be. They have strong looking root systems so I’m excited to see how they establish.

    Staurogyne Repens bunches
    Posted by Unknown on 21 Nov 2019

    I just received my Staurogyne repens (and other plants) today. All plants in the shipment looked great! Each Staurogyne bunch had many stems and all of the stems had well-started roots going. They look healthy and strong, so I am excited to see how fast they settle in.
