    • Hardness: Soft to moderately hard water
  • Placement: Best placed in the midground or background of the aquarium to create depth and visual interest.

Care Instructions:

  1. Lighting: Provide high-intensity lighting (2-4 watts per gallon) to ensure the plant maintains its vibrant red coloration. LED lights or fluorescent tubes are ideal.
  2. CO2 Injection: While Glandulosa can survive without CO2 injection, it thrives and displays its best colors with supplemental CO2. Aim for a CO2 concentration of 20-30 ppm.
  3. Fertilization: Regularly dose the aquarium with a balanced liquid fertilizer rich in iron and micronutrients. Root tabs can also be beneficial for substrate fertilization.
  4. Substrate: Use a nutrient-rich substrate to support healthy root development. Aquasoil or similar planted tank substrates are ideal.
  5. Water Changes: Perform regular water changes (20-30% weekly) to maintain water quality and provide essential nutrients.
  6. Trimming: Trim the plant regularly to promote bushy growth and prevent it from overshadowing other plants. Replant the cuttings to propagate new plants.

Additional Tips:

  • Ensure good water circulation to distribute nutrients and CO2 evenly.
  • Monitor for algae growth, especially under high lighting conditions, and take necessary steps to control it.
  • Acclimate the plant slowly to its new environment to minimize shock and ensure a smooth transition.
