Lilaeopsis novae-zelandiae on grid 9 x 11 cm.

Lilaeopsis Novae-Zelandiae can grow very compact, but a "lawn effect'' (4-7 cm tall) is only achieved at high light intensity. When planting the pad in the aquarium, cover the grid entirely with a centimetre of bottom layer material to help the plants grow new roots. Place it away from the shading of other plants to ensure it gets good light.
