 "Got nice bunches of the Water Sprite. It's been growing since I got it under Gro lights. The new growth is really pretty as the old starts to die away. Really pretty green. Generous number of plants and fast shipping. Well packed Thanks!"
-Allan

Like its Laceleaf sibling, Broadleaf Water Sprite is one of those plants I instinctively reach for when I set up a fry  tank. It's a larger plant that grows a great root system, but grows better floating in the water column!

I just plop mine in a new tank, and it quickly spreads and unfurls a veritable riot of branches and roots-- the perfect shelter for growing fry!

You can, of course, plant Ceratopteris thalictroides, should you wish to. I'd place it towards the back/ middle of your aquascape. 

In favored conditions, Water sprite loves to grow new baby ferns right along its older leaves! pinch these off once they start growing roots, and you'll have new Water Sprites!

One order is for one 3"+ tall rosette; plant varies in it's natural state.

Growing requirements:

  • 65-80 Degrees Fahrenheit
  • Ph 6-8
  • Low to Medium light intensity.
  • Grows 6-18" tall
  • Quick growth

As I like to keep real ecosystems in my aquariums, there's always the possibility of harmless snail or dwarf shrimp hitchhikers!

watersprite

I am starting a new 55. I ordered the watersprite and I must admit that it didnt look great when it arrived but it really seems to be thriving. I am very happy.

As with anything I've ever ordered from Glass Grown Aquatics, the plants I ordered arrived promptly, were well packaged, and very healthy!
I can find plants for less money from other vendors, but I can't get customer support that begins to compare to Cassandra or anyone on her staff!
My questions are always answered, and anyone can do that. But they are never "canned" responses, and they let me know if they have any concerns. That level of support is rare when dealing with vendors that offer large, diverse, inventories.
One tiny word of caution: I say tiny as we are warned about potential unseen "hitchhikers". Heed the warning!

The shipping is great everything packaged with great care. I have kept the other form of water sprite and it thrives as a floating plant. I really like the longer hanging root system of this species and so far so good. A bit of melt happening and the leaves are delicate in comparison to the other water sprite but another hobbiest led me to this plant stating it’s his favorite so I am hopeful it will acclimate and do well! As for Glass Grown I will definitely recommend them their personal touch added to mix with plant care instructions and attention to detail is top notch!
