Nymphoides sp. 'Taiwan'


In contrast to many other Nymphoides species with floating leaves, this species only forms underwater leaves. The decorative, vibrant, light green leaves create excellent contrast with other green or colored aquarium plants. The origin of this species is still uncertain – the first examples were imported from Taiwan. Hence the variety name of this low-maintenance Nymphoides species, 'Taiwan'. This plant is also especially well-suited to Discus aquaria. The fish like to hang around under the leaf canopy.
