This is an excellent, moderately demanding and highly versatile plant with beautiful lanceolate green leaves. The native population of this species originates from the Brazilian River Rio Cristalino, where it grows on and between rocks on full sun. Although, it is a relatively slow grower, Staurogyne creates numerous lateral branches resulting in a formation of a thick carpet or dense bushes that can be easily trimmed. Strong light, CO2 injection and substrate rich with nutrients are necessary for developing the root system.
