    Description

    Juncus repens originates from swampy areas of south-east North America. This grasslike plant is rather undemanding in cultivation. It grows stems. Under unhindered light and with a good dose of micronutrients, this plant assumes a reddish-brown hue. Under moderate light, it has a pleasant green. Its moderate but constant growth makes Juncus repens an easy-to-handle plant, even though it is a little susceptible for green spot algae. It is propagated by cuttings like other stem plants.

    Even though other members of the rush family (Juncaceae) are popular plants for ponds or their edges, Juncus repens, the lesser creeping rush, is their only representative used in aquaria so far. Its habit is quite unique, as it looks like a mixture of stem and rosulate plant. Its flattish stem is interrupted by tufts of numerous narrow, pointed leaves in regular distances.

    This rush species is quite common the southeast of the US, where it is found growing emersed as well as submersed. Even though it is not frequently found in trade in its country of origin, it is readily available for European hobbyists.

    The overall requirements of J. repens are easy to meet, and the plant does well in a multitude of different setups, it grows equally well under low light as under strong light. (read more)
