This “Godzilla” was named for its longish dark-green, curved, and ridged leaves that exhibit a blue sheen and tons of scale-like silvery dots.
Like eye-catching gold coins, this easy-to-keep and highly decorative plant looks great surrounded by other greenery.
Easy to care for, this Brazilian plant does not require CO2 or high lighting. With extensive root systems, they do best in nutrient-rich substrates and propagate via side shoots from the main rhizome.
Known commonly as Peacock Moss, Taxiphyllum sp. “Peacock” has a growth habit with a fanciful resemblance to that of the tail feathers of its animal namesake.
Nutrient supplementation of iron and nitrogen, high lighting, and CO2 setups are recommended for optimal red coloration of this easy to grow aquarium plant.
