Marsilea Hirsuta TC


Dwarf Four Leaf Clover

Marsilea Hirsuta is a dwarf clover-like foreground plant.  It is considered a slow growing carpeting plant which is relatively easy to keep compared to other foregrounds such as Dwarf Baby Tears.  When grown under medium to high light, the plant stays low growing and spreads horizontally. Under low light, the plant tends to grow higher, losing the desired carpeting affect.  

Remove tissue culture gel before planting.  Simply wash the gel away or soak the plant in water and squeeze the gel off with your fingers.
