Description

Marsilea sp. is a clover fern whose species is not yet clear. Like M. crenata and M. hirsuta it is a very good lawn-like ground-covering plant. Its submersed leaves are roundish and sit on a stalk.

New leafes of Marsilea have brown color. Those leafes are not rotten or dead.

Some water clover species (Marsilea) have become very popular foreground plants in the aquarium hobby, comparable with Glossostigma elatinoides, which has a comparable leaf form. Marsilea is an aquatic fern, and there are over 40 species in the genus growing in shallow water and in moist locations. The leaves of their emersed or floating forms are all divided in four parts and have a long stalk reminding of four-leaf clover. They grow on thin rhizomes growing mostly in the substrate. Aquatic ferns of this genus can be found in almost all the world: in Europe, Asia, Africa, America and Australia.

In trade, several Marsilea species are offered, mainly under the names M. crenata and M. hirsuta. The species are hard to discern, however, especially if the so-called sporocarps ("spore fruit") are missing, which only develop on the basis of the leaf stalk in the emersed form. (read more)

Alles wie beschrieben. Schneller Transport, gute Qualität. Immer wieder gern. Weiter so! Nur eines: Das man hier mindestens so und so viele Wörter schreiben muss, nervt.

Anmerkung Aquasabi: Vielen Dank für die Bewertung. Aber gerade solche Bewertungen, die auf unsere generellen Stärken eingehen, wären besser unter Shopauskunft.de aufgehoben. Wir würden bei den Produktbewertungen in Zukunft viel lieber ausführlichere Rezensionen zu den Produkten sehen. Aus diesem Grund haben wir uns für die Mindestwortanzahl entschieden, um mehr Informationen in die Bewertungen zu bekommen, welche den Kunden dann bei der Entscheidung deutlich weiterhelfen.

Pflanzen waren vergammelt, mag hier die Ausnahme sein, aber so etwas würde ich nicht losschicken. Bin hierbei total enttäuscht da es zum eigentliche Aquasabi-Standard nicht passt. (read more)
