Eustralis Stellata "Very strong, very purple" WILD Aquarium Plant
How about the most PURPLE plant I have ever sold? Eustralis stellata folks. I would love to tell you this is an easy beginner plant. It is not. This plant is visibly demanding of more nutrients than your average plant. (We recommend our Growth Juice Fertilizer in higher dosage for this plant)
Eustralis stellata also enjoys as much high light and perhaps CO2 as you can give it. It isn't impossible to keep, but it certainly needs fed and knows what it wants.
You will get at least 5 stems in a portion. We recommend separating the stems for better growth. This is a stunning background plant.
I don't typically carry these plants as they require more work on our part as well.
The Purple photos are what it looks like the day we got it in. You can see that lighter green is what it looks like as of 10-9-17. It has adapted well to good underwater growth!
YOU WON"T BE DISAPPOINTED with this plant.
Grab some Eustralis stellata and take the colors of your aquarium to the next level.
lost most of its red color and still trying to get it back. it grows no problem but would love to get those colors back..
I had a slight hiccup in shipping (I live in a rural area). But plants arrived well packaged. With only slight melt. The stems are really strong on these plants. They are slightly green but they are quite purple next to my other plants. They definitely complement the Alternanthera reineckii. 5-8 stems quaintly attached to a little rock. You can see the overwhelming care put into these plants by their healthy-ness upon arrival (after spending days in a box). Thank you Dustin and the team for adding a lot of color to my 55s. My goodeids love it. Tank on!
It almost saddens me to write this review because I advocate for Dustin's plants to everyone I know ot talk to on fish groups, but I must say this purchase was really disappointing. The plant arrived slightly wilted with a few rotten stems (which it happens/ expected at times living in Florida and shipping in this heat) but this plant has ZERO purple, red, pink, or any color, but green... I put it in my high tech 75g and the wilted ones have turned around but this plant is green and only getting greener. Really wanted to add to my reds to stand out in my green jungle, but I guess this was not the right choice to do that.
I got mine yesterday! All made it nice and healthy. They’re absolutely gorgeous!!!! The color is super bright purple!
Recently ordered some Eustelis Stellata and only about 3 stems survived shipping. Unfortunately it gets pretty hot in az and I got the package as soon as it was delivered but it was too late:(
