new at this. I am not interested in snail infestation. is the tissue culture worth the extra $$. I'm looking at staurogyne repens low grow. anyone have any experience with these?
petsmart,I got my s. repens in one of those vacuum sealed snail-free packs at petsmart...
how did they turn out? do you recommend
what substrate for s. repen? I have gravel, will adjust iff needed.
BamBam, where did you get your plants?
Is 10000k high tech in any way? I honestly know nothing about lighting. But I only ask because that's all I've got for lighting and mine have absolutely flourished! Big time!Staurogyne repens is a fantastic low growing plant that won't die if you don't have a super high tech setup. It also won't flourish. You'll just have to plant a lot where you want your carpet.
haven't bought any yet or even looked that much, but I thought it would be the opposite. less plant or material with tissue culture for more money. so this assumption is wrong? I don't care about the size because they will grow. eventually.The tissue cultures are better just for the simple fact that you get way more plants for your money. They are small, but you get way more to work with.
Yes the plants are smaller, but you get way more individual plants in a tissue culture versus grown out portions. A 2x2 portion of staurogyne repens may have 4 or 5 plants in it at best, but a 2x2 tissue culture could have 10 or 15 individual plants.haven't bought any yet or even looked that much, but I thought it would be the opposite. less plant or material with tissue culture for more money. so this assumption is wrong?
