Spathiphyllum Wallisli - submerged - Aquarium Strands
From: £3.94

This plant is not a true aquatic species but it is often used in terrariums or shallow tanks. The flower stems need to be out of the water. It is also a very popular house plant but in aquariums it does have a fairly short lifespan compared to most of the other species. They do like a fairly low lighting system, bright lighting can scorch the leaves. Browning of the leaves can indicate a nutrient deficiency, if this is the case extra nutrients should be added to the water column using a suitable plant food that is safe for the live inhabitants of the aquarium. Any leaves that are above the water surface will require misting on a regular basis, the leaves will droop if allowed to dry out too much.


Plants are incubated in a solution of 0.01% of the insecticide Buprafezin for one hour (Please do not just drop these in a shrimp tank or with any other crustacean). To use these within a tank please wash in water with baking soda under light. These are treated to remove the insecticide but there are cases where this has not been fully removed causing casualties in crustacean. Posting: Monday-Thursday Except Bank Holidays All Plants are posted FIRST CLASS Plants are packed to last 7 days. Supplier of plants: oxygenators, reeds, iris, water lilies, bog gardens, wildlife ponds, natural ponds, lakes, floating plants, deep water plants, marginals, native british and tropical.

This plant is not a true aquatic species but it is often used in terrariums or shallow tanks. The flower stems need to be out of the water. It is also a very popular house plant but in aquariums it does have a fairly short lifespan compared to most of the other species. They do like a fairly low lighting system, bright lighting can scorch the leaves. Browning of the leaves can indicate a nutrient deficiency, if this is the case extra nutrients should be added to the water column using a suitable plant food that is safe for the live inhabitants of the aquarium. Any leaves that are above the water surface will require misting on a regular basis, the leaves will droop if allowed to dry out too much.

When purchasing a specimen make sure that the leaves are bright green and upright, drooping leaves or browning means that the plant is not in the best condition.

It should definitely be noted that this plant is poisonous if the leaves are crushed or broken, you should always wash your hands after handling.
