Nesaea Pedicellata ‘Golden’ features greenish golden leaves that run down a pinkish red stem hence its name. Native to West Africa, this aquatic plant has been in the trade for some time and is a nice pop of color when used in a planted aquarium. This aquatic plant is quite hardy and can grow well in different water parameters but prefers a temperature of 21-26°C . In order to bring out intense coloration, medium to high lighting should be provided along with a nutrient dense aquarium soil and fertilizing routine with aquatic plant fertilizer. Like most aquatic stem plants, Nesaea Pedicellata Golden requires high-quality LED aquarium lighting and CO2 injection to promote lush growth that is sought after by planted aquarium enthusiasts.
As there are very few golden colored aquatic plants, Nesaea Pedicellata Golden is a gem and a beautiful way to add a diverse palette of colors into a planted aquarium.
Propagation is similar to other aquatic stem plants and can be gently trimmed and replanted into aquarium soil. Frequent trimming should be performed to encourage and produce bush-like growth.
