Description: Dwarf Riccia offers very similar features to standard Riccia with more compact and manageable growth due to a slower growth rate. It is perfect for low tech aquariums as it is so easy to grow and is extremely versatile in how it can be used. Because this is a floating plant in nature, it is important to make sure the plant is very securely attached to hardscape if you wish to use it in this way. Otherwise it will float away.
Difficulty: As with all aquarium plants, Co2 injection and appropriate fertilisation are recommended for optimal health and growth. Dwarf Riccia does not require Co2 injection or high lighting. However, the addition of such technology will ensure more compact and desirable growth.
