Limnophila hippuridoides


Limnophila hippuridoides in the above-water form is not particularly eye-catching with green leaves. However, under water the plant develops into a colorful beauty. Soft to medium hard water, intensive lighting and a good CO2 supply will guarantee this plant to be a highlight in the middle to background. A group with several stems is especially impressive. Unlike many other stem plants, the growth is quite moderate, so pruning can be done at longer intervals. Bright green species growing nearby increase the color contrast.
