Lilaeopsi Braslilensis LIVE AQUARIUM PLANT
The Brazilian micro sword (Lilaeopsis brasiliensis) is a short-stemmed plant, that can be grown as a carpet in an aquarium. It is found throughout much of Brazil, and it grows both fully submersed and partially submersed on the banks of rivers and streams.
It will grow to a maximum size of 3 inches (7.5 cm) in a home aquarium, and will form a dense and impressive carpet if it is provided the right mix of CO2, nutrients and lighting. This can be a somewhat difficult plant to grow, and should only be attempted by aquarists who have some experience with aquatic plants.
Brazilian micro sword is primarily used in the foreground of an aquarium, and should only be grown planted in a nutrient rich substrate. I would strongly recommend using Flourite the premium substrate for aquariums, which provides essential nutrients to plant roots. Otherwise, root tabs will accomplish the same.
