Proserpinaca palustris, also known as mermaid weed, can be found growing throughout the southeastern United States and Latin America in humid soils, ditches, ponds, streams, and marshes.

Proserpinaca palustris

In the emerged stage, this stem plant originating from Cuba looks rather unimpressive with its simple green leaves. After a period of acclimatisation under water, the plant will gradually reveal its feathery and magnificently colourised underwater leaves. Proserpinaca grows slowly and is recommended for Nano Cubes. The stalks do not branch out too much, which is why the head cuttings should be put back on the same spot. The lower, no longer nice-looking part of the stalk should be removed.

plant-it! plants are cultivated in the laboratory under sterile conditions. They are supplied in a 7 cm, sealed tub. The small plants are completely free of algae and snails and can be planted directly. This product is ideal for smaller aquaria and Nano Cubes and for modern aquascaping. The top right hand corner of the packaging very clearly shows how much care each plant requires. Before introducing the plants, the nutrient medium simply has to be rinsed and the plants divided. Clean it, cut it, PLANTit!
