Plant Profile Staurogyne spec. 'bihar'


26 Aug 2016
Plantbase submitted a new Plantbase Item:

Staurogyne spec. 'bihar'

The acanthus Staurogyne spec. 'Bihar' is a new arrival in aquatics. In contrast to the well-known foreground species S. repens and S. spec. 'Porto Vehlo', it is a plant for the background. It grows well and is easy to care for. Due to its rapid growth, the stems should be trimmed regularly. The leaves on the shoot tips are usually slightly slotted and are strongly reminiscent of the well-known Hygrophila pinnatifida. With good lighting, the plant becomes brownish red with slightly pink coloured undersides of the leaves.
