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. This plant can very easily be a complete showstopper and centerpeiece for the aquarium.
