Growing Information:

1. Lighting: Lilaeopsis macloviana does well in moderate to high lighting conditions. Sufficient light encourages compact growth and the development of a lush carpet.

2. Substrate: Plant in a nutrient-rich substrate for optimal growth. A fine-grain substrate with good nutrient content supports the establishment of a dense carpet.

3. CO2 and Nutrients: While it can adapt to low CO2 levels, providing a moderate amount enhances its growth. Regular fertilization with a liquid fertilizer or root tabs ensures an adequate supply of nutrients.

4. Pruning: Regular trimming helps maintain the desired carpet height and prevents the formation of dense mats that might hinder light penetration. Trim the tops or cut the runners to control growth.
