The Riparium Planter Medio (Riparium Supply brand) resembles the Aqua Verdi Riparium Planter, but includes a few extra features. With black acrylic front and side panels the planter is inconspicuous in the underwater shadows of a riparium layout. The rear panel is cut from clear transparent acrylic, allowing for observation of root development. The planter shape is also distinct, with a somewhat broader top opening that is easy to access for planting.
The Riparium Planter Medio incorporates an ingenious, patent-pending new technology, the Tab & Slot Joint (TabSynth Design Works LLC), to build a sturdy planter cup with laser-cut acrylic parts. The planter holds a little less than 1 cup (.2 L) of Riparium Planter Gravel (sold separately) or other suitable clay gravel substrate. The heavy-duty suction cups last longer and hold much better than the thinner plastic cups supplied with most aquarium accessories.
For best results, use true marginal aquatic plants with your Riparium Planter Medio.The following lists some of the best plant choices:
- Ruellia Dwarf Bluebell
- Asclepias Mexican Milkweed
- Zephyranthes Rain Lily
- Avicennia germinans Black Mangrove
- Spathiphyllum Peace Lily
- Echinodorus Swordplant
- Chamaedorea Cat Palm
- Acorus Japanese Sweetflag
- Pogonatherum Baby Panda Bamboo
Use a clay-based planted aquarium gravel as rooting substrate in the Riparium Planter Medio. Riparium plants can also benefit from aquarium fertilizer tabs (buried 1/2-way down in the planter) and water column fert dosing.
An instruction sheet with assembly and planting tips is included inside.
