Didiplis diandra


Didiplis diandra is a particularly colorful stem plant from the eastern part of the USA. The submerged needle-like leaflets are arranged crosswise in opposition to each other, which gives the plant a very delicate look. Provide for good lighting and sufficient fertilization to ensure wonderful colors in all shades of orange and red. A good supply of CO2 promotes considerably better and faster growth. In order to support the colorful growth, please also supply the plants with iron and micronutrients. Didiplis beautifully contrasts with purely green stem plants such as Rotala spec. Green or when added to other colorful plants.
