Glossostigma elatinoides 'Platinum' is a rare and captivating variant of the popular Glossostigma elatinoides, distinguished by its unique lack of green pigment, giving it a striking, almost albino appearance. This exceptional plant is highly sought after by advanced aquarists for its distinctive look and the challenge it presents in cultivation.


The scientific name is Glossostigma elatinoides 'Platinum', and it is a cultivar of the Scrophulariaceae family. Originating from selective cultivation, this plant features small, rounded leaves with a silvery-white hue due to the absence of green pigment. It has a fast growth rate, typically reaching a height of 2-3 cm (0.8-1.2 inches), but its unique pigmentation makes it significantly more challenging to grow compared to its green counterpart.

Care and Maintenance:

Due to the lack of chlorophyll, Glossostigma elatinoides 'Platinum' requires exceptionally high-intensity lighting and consistent CO2 supplementation to support its growth and metabolic needs. A nutrient-rich substrate is crucial, along with regular and careful fertilization. This plant is sensitive to environmental changes and requires stable water parameters to thrive. Maintaining a healthy 'Platinum' carpet demands a high level of expertise and dedication.

Aquascaping Tips:

Glossostigma elatinoides 'Platinum' is ideal for creating a unique, eye-catching foreground carpet in an aquarium. It is perfect for advanced aquascapes, adding a striking contrast and texture. Plant in small clusters, spacing them a few centimeters apart to encourage spreading. Regular trimming is necessary to prevent overgrowth and maintain a neat appearance. Due to its demanding nature, 'Platinum' is best suited for experienced aquarists who can provide the meticulous care it requires.

Glossostigma elatinoides 'Platinum' is a stunning and rare addition to any advanced aquascape, offering both a visual delight and a rewarding challenge for dedicated aquarists.
