Leafs are bright green and rounded.



The addition of CO2 is not essential at all but can be used if already available.

Lighting is another story, If lighting is insufficient then they will rot away.


Adaptation/transition period

All plants need to adapt to their new environment and leaf loss is expected, because the plant need to produce new leaves that can live under the new conditions and need to lose the old leaves. Sometimes to the point that you only have stems left, but don’t despair the plant is not dead, just wait for the new leaves to appear


Tips on how to assist the plant through this period:

  • Wash gel off in a jug of aquarium water to prevent chlorine shock
  • Ensure good water quality
  • Remove dead leaves and stem as they appear
  • Use a good quality plant food additive AND use according to manufacturer’s instructions
  • Do regular water changes, up to 30% per week if you introduced a lot of plants



This is not normally a problem after the plant adapted to your aquarium. Should you experience rot and or melting ensure the following:

  • Check the lighting
  • Water temperature is correct & not fluctuating
  • You are not overdosing with an additive
  • Poor water quality can also lead to melting and rot.
  • Anaerobic conditions in the substrate (due to incorrect maintenance) will lead to death of the plants


Please do more research to ensure you understand all the needs of plants in your care, it is just good all around.


Remember our pictures might not represent the final plant colours in your aquarium as all your aquarium conditions will combine to influence the plant in your aquarium. But is a good representation of what you could expect.
