ABC Plants is super excited about our current and upcoming range of Eriocaulon variations. Eriocaulons are relatively rare, but beautiful plants, that require a little bit of care and attention to reach their full potential! Here we have our Hainan Island version which has been growing under high light conditions, with CO2 injection, in a nutrient rich substrate (root tabs can also be used).

To the right, we are testing a new variety: Eriocaulon – Ratonagiriuni. Keep an eye out for this one in the future!

Our high light and co2 set up produced excellent results. We planted half a cup of each:

a) Hemianthus callitrichoides, var. Cuba 

b) Alternanthera reineckii 

c) Rotala robustus ‘mini’ 

d) Rotala indica.

Check out the growth after just two months! These plants are now available for our Montreal customers – available for purchase and pick up at our warehouse!

Nikki has been testing some of our products in one of her personal low-tech aquariums at home. Planted in the middle, and floating at the top is one of our Water Sprite species – Ceratopteris cornuta. At the front, to the left is one of our rare Eriocaulon variations, Hainan Island (planted with root tabs for healthy growth). And lurking at the back right is some freshly planted Hygrophila tigris – a new variation unique to ABC Plants!

Here at ABC Plants, we use tissue culture methods to propagate our products. This ensures that they are snail and algae free, and are designed for a seamless transition to your aquascape! Here are some freshly cultured Hygrophila polysperma which will soon be available in our plants store.

We use shrimp to keep our aquariums at ABC algae free; they also do a great job cleaning detritus off our plants.
