Limnophila hippuridoides

 

Layouts containing this plant

Grown in a coconut fibre mini-pot to plug and grow in the tank. Packed in a breathable blister packaging to go.

Limnophila hippuridoides is originally from Asia and the stalks grow to be 20-50cm high and 6-10cm wide – often with beautiful outwards crooked shoot tips. A simple plant, able to adjust to various conditions. 

The leaves are green with a red-violet underside, and the whole leaf turns red-violet under ideal growth conditions. It is a vibrant growing plant, which willingly creates new, solid shoots from the base. Thinning of the oldest and longest shoots is recommended, in order to make room for such new shoots.
