Limnophila sessiliflora


Stem plant distributed widely across Asia. In its emersed state it is a dwarf plant with shoots densely covered in leaves. In aquariums the feathered leaf shape is much more apparent, and the color changes to light green. Limnophila sessiliflora is a good alternative to light-hungry Cabombas. As with many of the more delicate stem plants, these stems are better planted in a large group. Under good light the shoots turn a rusty brown color.
