LFS - Foreground Yellow/Blonde Plants

Hey guys, I'm looking for a yellowish/Blonde foreground plant. Something that will contrast nicely against a red plant.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Big fan of Ludwigia Polycarpa. Changes color the closer it gets to the light as well ! From carpet to 12" +, it's a great plant all around. Very Versatile plant.

Depending on the size of your tank you can use Staurogyne repens. It is green but on the lighter side of green in my experience.

Glosso platinum might be good for you. I believe it requires high light and co2. You could also look into the various mutations of anubias nana.

Parrot feather submerged reaches a nice golden color.

Growing is not that difficult.

I came across one yellow plant browsing ebay called Nesaea Pedicellsta “Golden”. It’s very yellow! You should be able to find it in a search there. The description is:

Nesaea pedicellata has been around for many years, although not very easy to find in the US trade. It is native to West Africa and has yellowish green colored leaves with brown stems. Nesaea pedicellata 'Golden' was discovered as a variegated sport of Nesaea pedicellata. After growing and selecting the stems a solid gold form was identified and named Nesaea pedicellata 'Golden'. Unlike its parent, Nesaea pedicellata 'Golden' is extremely eye catching with bright gold leaves and a hot pink stem.

Nesaea pedicellata is native to west Africa and is relatively easy to grow in an aquarium. It tolerates both hard or soft water and prefers a temperature between 70 and 78 degrees. It prefers medium to high lighting and a nutritious substrate. N. pedicellata 'Golden' shares these characteristics which make it a nice colorful addition to any aquarium. There are very few gold colored plants in the aquarium trade so the addition of Nesaea pedicellata 'Gold' will help aquascapers around the world to add more color and diversity to their planted aquaria.


CO2 demand: not necessary
Level: medium- easy
Lighting: Low-Medium
Growth Rate: fast
Placement: Midground-background

Good luck!
