Schismatoglottis roseospatha is a remarkable Aroid from the southern part of Sarawak on Borneo. It is a rheophyte, attached on rock along fast-flowing rainforest streams, comparable to the related Bucephalandra species. Although it is only temporarily flooded during high water level in the nature, it thrives well as constantly submerged aquarium plant. The narrowly ovate to lanceolate, dark green, somewhat glossy leaves have a slightly crispate margin and long tip. The creeping rhizome has quite long roots. Young leaf stalks and rhizome tips are red-brown. The stomata on the leaf surface appear under water as silvery spots. The leaf size is very variable depending on conditions and age of the plant. Although Schismatoglottis roseospatha is known to the hobby for years, it is still rarely available in trade.
This plant is not demanding but benefits from good CO2 and nutrient supply. It attaches itself to rock by its roots but can also be fixed to the botton (do not bury the rhizome!), or simply stuffed into the crevices of the hardscape. With time, the very slow growth may accelerate, and the very small plant increases in size.
With its narrow, shiny, dark green leaves, this little known plant is very interesting for the aquarium design, for example in stream biotope tanks.
Please be aware that the submerse form of this plant could contain snails and other invertebrates.
Aquasabi is our own brand, under which we offer high-quality products with a very good price-performance ratio. Carefully selected CO2 diffusers, CO2 bubble counters or lily pipes are just some of the items we sell under this brand and which will surely add to the value und the beauty of any aquascape. For this reason, many aquascapers and planted tank enthusiasts use products by Aquasabi.
Besides the good price-performance ratio, our main focus is on the satisfaction of our customers. This is the reason why our doors are always open for those who need help with our products.
When it comes to special aquatic plants, water plants from Aquasabi are just the thing for you. We offer rarities from our own cultivating tanks or import them specifically. These plants are otherwise hard to come by, and most of them cannot be purchased from other shops. We have high quality standards, which make Aquasabi plants a good choice for aquascapers, planted tank enthusiasts and aquatic plant collectors who want to enrich their tanks with rare aquatic plants. Special mosses, particular stem plants, hard-to-come-by ferns or very rare forms of the genus Bucephalandra are only a few of the plants we are proud to offer.
This is a very rare plant that you will not find anywhere else! Thanks Aquasabi! Leaves are very nice slightly striped with fresh green colour. (read more)
