Description

Staurogyne repens is a light green compact strong plant for the aquarium foreground originating from Rio Cristalino in Brazil. It can be used as ground-covering plant or as low cushion-like bush. Forms well through trimming. It is effective for setting accents in crevices and gaps in the hardscape. If you get a plant with long stems from emerged cultivation you ought to cut them off, cut them into several parts and plant them into the substrate, keeping a small distance. The lateral shoots that form in this case will grow more or less horizontally along the substrate. A lot of light (at least 0.5 W/litre) and a good CO2 and nutrient supply are recommendable.

This plant was hitherto known as Staurogyne spec., or Staurogyne sp. "Rio Cristalino". However, in 2010, Dr. Dieter C. Wasshausen (Smithsonian Institution, Washington) identified flowering plants herbarised by Christel Kasselmann as Staurogyne repens (Nees) Kuntze [1].
The aquarium population of this species originates from Rio Cristalino in the Brazilian federal state Mato Grosso. The plant were found growing on and between rocks on the bank of the fast-flowing river, mainly above the waterline, and in full sun. [1],[2]. In May 2008, Staurogyne repens was presented as new aquarium plant (back then as Staurogyne spec.) during the Interzoo trade fair by Tropica.

Recently, this plant has also been offered erroneously as Staurogyne sp. 'Porto Velho'. (read more)
