Tropica Aqua Decor

In Nature, some plants used in the aquarium grow naturally on stones and tree roots. Prime examples are Anubias and Microsorum. The typical biotope for such plants is close to a waterfall; either the lake formed beneath the waterfall or the area around the waterfall, which is continuously bathed in a fine mist or spray. The plants colonise fissures and hollows in stones and tree roots. The AquaDecor varieties opens up new opportunities to create landscapes in an aquarium or can be used in a simple bowl on a table where the plant and lava stone are highly decorative in themselves.

AquaDecor varieties BankWood: (Z) The plant is attached to a tree root with suction discs at one end to attach it so that it appears to "grow" out of the glass of the aquarium.
