Tropical Aquarium Plants Advanced

12 items from £4.99 to £49.95 - see below

The Tropica Tropical 'Advanced' Care Aquarium Plants require almost perfect growing conditions. These plants need 1 Watt per litre or more of light to thrive fully and a constant CO2 supply of 15-25 mg per litre. The plants in this range are better suited to people with time to care for their aquarium regularly and those with more experience and knowledge of keeping more demanding aquatic plants. A regular use of special fertilisers are highly recommended for these plant species.

Having trouble deciding or not sure which plant is best suited for your aquarium needs? Call our Aquatic team on 0116 267 6121 or 0116 267 7091 who are happy to help. We also welcome you to visit our Garden Centre to view our tropical plant range.
