Glossostigma elatinoides is much in demand in Japanese-inspired
aquariums. It is one of the smallest aquarium plants, and thus a good foreground
plant. A difficult plant demanding a lot of light. Grows upwards if light is
poor. Make sure larger plants do not overshadow it. When planting in the
aquarium small clumps (approx. 1/8 pot) should be placed at intervals of a few
centimetres to help the plants grow together more quickly. CO2
addition and soft water promote growth significantly.
