Scirpus cernuus Fibre optic plant



The Scirpus cernuus is a versatile and stylish fibre optic plant that will add a touch of class to any home or office. With its glossy thread-like leaves and flower spikes, it is both an eye-catching and oxygenating marginal plant. The tiny white flowers on the tips of the leaves are a beautiful addition to any setting, and the plant is very easy to care for.

Repotting or planting

9cm oxygenating plants require potting into a larger mesh basket. Place in a pond no deeper than 1/3 maximum recommended planting depth to allow the plants to establish. 1ltr oxygenating plants do not require repotting, place in pond no deeper than 1/2 maximum recommended planting depth to allow the plants to establish. 2ltr plants do not require repotting, as they are larger more established plants they can be placed up to the maximum recommended depth. There is no need to remove the mesh basket.
