Description

Undemanding, fast-growing moss for cold- as well as warm-water tanks. This is true Leptodictyum riparium, it is not the same as the upright-growing so-called "Stringy moss". Its shoots grow horizontally, or rather, in all directions, like those of Java moss. Their rhizoids cling to driftwood or rocks. This aquatic moss is found in almost all the world, and its somewhat unkempt looks are great for biotope tanks.

Please be aware that the submerse form of this plant could contain snails and other invertebrates.

In aquaristics, the name Leptodictyum riparium (or Amblystegium riparium) is commonly used for the upright-growing "stringy moss". However, populations of L. riparium native to Germany have a very different appearance even when kept under the same conditions. They form - if they are not kept under very low light - more or less horizontal shoots with a dense, flat foliage. The growth habit of this moss corresponds to the descriptions of L. riparium in taxonomic literature (e.g. Frahm & Frey 1992) far better than that of the upright-growing "stringy moss". We are of the opinion that the popular "stringy moss" is Drepanocladus aduncus, not L. riparium.

Streamside Leptodictyum moss, or Leptodictyum riparium, is distributed in almost all the world, and besides willow moss (Fontinalis antipyretica) it is probably the most common aquatic mmoss in Central Europe. (read more)

Leptodictyum riparium - Linea Cup

Entwickelt sich gut. Sieht aus, wie ein Mini-Tannenbäumchen. ich habe es auf Holz gebunden. Ich überlege, ob ich noch mehr davon kaufe.

Diese Pflanze kann ich wirklich empfehlen.
