Glossostigma Elatinoides

Common Name: Glosso
Family: Phrymaceae
Genus: Glossostigma
Origins: Australia
Lighting: Low to High
Growth Rate: Fast
Placement: Foreground

A wonderful foreground plant for beginner and experts alike. This plant benefits greatly from medium to high light which helps to keep growth low. Low light will produce tall leafy nodes which otherwise makes for a less than ideal carpet. Deep trimming to expose the nodes will encourage new smaller leaves than the original.  This is a must plant for any hobbyist resume.
