Marsilea Hirsuta - Tissue Culture Cup

Marsilea Hirsuta also is known as Dwarf Four Leaf Clover. It's a popular foreground, a carpet plant originally from Australia. Even though it's called Dwarf Four Leaf clover. However, the leaf shape can range from one, two, three, or four leaves depending on the environment. There is no clear way to tell how their leaf system work. Overall, it's a very easy plant to keep. Under the right environment, it provided runners and spread out the entire aquarium. We currently carry two Marsilea species, Marsilea Hirsuta and Marsilea Crenata.

    wonderful little plant

    I bought this because I loved the looks and texture of the plant. I knew it was aquatic but have seen it in terrariums planted out of water in soil.
    I figured it would need time to adjust and get wilted etc, but it started to spread out right away.

    Im thinking of getting more but really if it grows this fast I dont know where to put it.

    Thank you for an amazing little plant


    Really full TC Cup full of healthy plants. Bought two and could have gotten by with one because of how much there was!

    I had no experience with tissue culture before

    The cup arrived quickly and it looks reasonably healthy. I wasn't familiar with tissue culture as I normally either got pots or bare roots. I was able to get the media gel off rather easily. What was tough was separating the plants. Once I did I found I had much more than I actually needed, since it was going into an established tank that had many plants already. I really like this even though it took a bit of time planting individual groups. I am very happy with how it looks. And definitely if I were starting from scratch, this would be my front carpet choice.

    Betta Bliss

    There were a few brown leaves when it arrived, but it's looking good now. I planted as one long "hedge." Best of all, my betta loves it! He literally rolls around in it!

    Great plant.

    The plant was delivered on time and in great condition. I highly recommend ordering from this company.

    Great as always

    Came in during 25 degree weather and three days late bc of the crazy mess of USPS without any DOAs. Can’t ask for any better from this company. Haven’t wronged me yet.
