Terrarium use and emersed growth: This might be a challenging plant in an aquarium but it is quite easy in a terrarium or paludarium. Eriocaulon ratnigiricum (like all Eriocaulons) Appreciates a humid environment and tends to stay smaller than the similar Eriocaulon 'Hainan Island'.


Appearance is similar in aquariums and terrariums with beautiful elongated leaves arranged in a rosette that almost resembles a miniature aloe plant.


Eriocaulon ratnigiricum is an amazing and rare plant to add to any terrarium and its unique appearance will instantly make a huge impact.


Eriocaulons in general prefer substrates that are slightly acidic and water on the soft side but they are much more adaptable than in a planted aquarium so almost any terrarium will do.


All Eriocaulons are amazing terrarium plants and Eriocaulon ratnigiricum is certainly no exception and looks even absolutely stunning when planted near some Eriocaulon King Crimson.
