Glossostigma elatinoides was popularized by Takashi Amano and is a long-time favorite as a foreground plant in aquariums. Once planted in the aquarium, they will expand to form a dense carpet. Make sure to have ample lighting and preferably supplemental CO2 to be successful with this foreground plant.
When Glossostigma does not have enough light, it tends to grow vertically rather than across the bottom. In good conditions, it will grow so fast that it mounds on top of itself, and needs to be trimmed regularly to keep it looking good. Don't be afraid to cut it back it hard.
