Limnophila aromatica


Also known as “rice paddy herb“, this plant is distributed widely across Southeast Asia and is very polymorphic with regards to its habitus. Under intense lighting in the aquarium, the leaflets will develop different red color hues, depending on the nutrients available. As with all stem plants, Limnophila aromatica should be planted in larger groups. The cascade-like arrangement of the leaflets makes for a harmonious appearance. This Asian stem plant can be particularly recommended for planting into an aquarium “Dutchstyle“.
