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.
The plant will thrive in immersed conditions as well, the video below shows our plants flowering above water - planted in our 110-year-old aquarium.
