Glossostigma elatinoides, or "Glosso" as it is more commonly known, is a popular low growing aquatic carpeting plant that originates from New Zealand. It is a popular choice among planted aquarium hobbyists who are interested in creating a lush carpet of greenery in their aquariums, especially those who keep freshwater shrimp. It was not used in aquaria until the late 1980s when Takashi Amano imported it to Japan and began creating amazing aquascapes carpeted with the diminutive plant.

High lighting and Co2 injection are necessary to keep this plant low growing and to help it spread out and carpet. Dry-starting the tank with this plant is another option to allow it to deeply root itself before flooding the tank.
