Glossostigma elantinoides, commonly known as Glosso, originates from New Zealand where it can be found growing in bogs and swamps. Glosso is now popular worldwide, and is considered one of the most popular foreground options for planted aquaria.

A rapid grower when light and nutrients are plentiful, Glosso propagates via sending out lateral shoots. Higher light will stimulate low compact growth, while too little light will cause Glosso to grow upwards, looking pale and spindly. As the plant grows, it will often grow over itself, and should be trimmed to keep the plant dense and low to the tank bottom
