Taxiphyllum 'Flame'

Aquarium plant from tissue culture in closed cup.

Asian Flame moss got its name from its form of growth. Tight, vertical and softly undulating shoots give the impression of a deep green campfire, 5-15 cm high. The special shape makes Flame moss very suitable for horizontal surfaces and it only spreads slowly horizontally.
Attach the moss to small stones or in small bundles on tree roots to obtain a lovely effect.
