Description: Jade Lotus Moss is an incredibly rare aquarium moss that can be quite difficult to obtain. Characterised by its name, each frond grows in a pattern that is comparable to that of a lotus pond plant. Despite its slow growth rate, we believe that jade lotus could be used in a similar manner to that of Mini Pellia. Given appropriate, lighting, fertilisation and Co2 injection, its growth will be predominantly upwards but overtime will spread across hardscaping surfaces. All considered, Jade Lotus Moss is the perfect addition for any aquarist looking to add something unique to their aquarium.
Difficulty: As with all aquarium plants, Co2 injection and appropriate fertilisation are recommended for optimal health and growth. Jade Lotus Moss will grow without Co2 albeit very slowly. In addition to this. each frond will be 'leggier' and less compact.
Emersed Growth: Jade Lotus moss can be grown emersed but will require a moist environment and some sort of medium to attach to. Typically lava rock, peat moss or some sort of aquarium substrate is used.
