When you enter a garden centre to buy plants for your garden, the most important thing is to consider size, width and maybe colour of how the different plants look fully grown. Many of the plants you choose are maybe bulbs, young plants, small fruit trees and even seed. The largest concern is for you to get high quality rooting and plants which are free from any possible disease!It's exactly what 1-2-GROW! plants offer for your aquatic environment.Grown in sterile conditions, free from algae, snails and pests the 1-2-GROW! products offer you a sound start for your tank.

Compared to normal aquatic pots, you also get lots of plant material per cup. Like building up a new garden, you need to be patient to see it grow. It's exactly the same with 1-2-GROW! Plants - but it's worth waiting for!

Carefully remove the plant from it's tub and wash off the growing media in clean tap water.- Use very sharp scissors to cut the plants into 6-8 small sections.- Use tweezers to plant your new plants and just watch them GROW!

  1. easiest carpet plant Review by patrick

    most likely the easiest carpeting plant for any aquarium, string lighting and co2 aren't essential for your carpet to spread. tropica makes it so easy for anyone to grow plants, plants need some time to acclimatise to submerged state so the original leaves may die away.. (Posted on 29/08/2013)

  2. What a great idea Review by Fred

    This is the way that all live plants should be sold! They grow within weeks and have no nasty snails hiding in them (Posted on 12/04/2013)

  3. I would buy again. Review by Ron

    Plants arrived quickly and looking very healthy. After easily washing off the gel they arrived in I cut about 6 different stems. They are very like cress to deal with and a little fragile but no problems planting with a little care. (Posted on 28/02/2013)

  4. Grows well Review by Jonathan

    Grows extremely well for a month, then will drop off as the supplied nutrients run out and it relies on your tank to feed it (Posted on 07/02/2013)

  5. Gorgeous carpet plant Review by Abbey

    I love this plant! Even for the lower tech aquarium. It carpets nicely. I am using it in a low tech tank, simply using liquid ferts and am getting nice growth. A gorgeous plant, and so easy to keep! (Posted on 09/12/2012)

  6. Reasonable Quality Review by Claire

    This plant arrived to me looking like it had been sitting around for a while. There was browning of leaves and there was a mixture of emmersed and immersed growth. The agar jelly was also pretty much gone. The plant is still recovering and is not yet spreading after about a month in a CO2 injected and fertilised tank. (Posted on 07/11/2012)

  7. this plant is brilliant Review by joe

    i used this as a really good decoration for my tank, i have quite a few tanks each to their own theme and this i have running all along the edges of my tank looks like a fence type thing also quite a quick grower faster horizontal then vertical though. (Posted on 25/03/2012)
