Lagenandra keralensis is a remarkable species from Kerala state in southwestern India that was scientifically described in 2001. It was until recently not at all known from cultivation, but surprisingly it is offered as tissue-cultured (in-vitro) plant by the Japanese company ADA. This species is not to be confused with an aquarium plant that is erroneously called "Lagenandra keralensis" and turned out as a narrow-leaved Lagenandra meeboldii form (see Lagenandra meeboldii "Kerala"). The true Lagenandra keralensis resembles broad-leaved forms of L. meeboldii but differs mainly in inflorescence features. The ovate leaves, sitting on a creeping rhizome, show brown tones. They have a finely ruffled margin and are covered with short hairs. According to the original species description, the leaf blades are 2,7-7 cm and the leaf stalks 2-7 cm long.
Structure of the submerged leaves
So far, little information is available on Lagenandra keralensis as an aquarium plant. In nature it occurs on shady, occasionally flooded stream banks, as do various other Lagenandra species. In the aquarium, the species has grown much more slowly than Lagenandra meeboldii. Several daughter rosettes have formed on the small, compact rhizome. We recommend medium lighting, good water current, rather soft water, CO2 injection and well-balanced macro- and micronutrient supply, also via the substrate. Its emersed cultivation should work with a moist to wet substrate and high air humidity.
Please be aware that the bunch/potted variation of this plant could contain snails and other invertebrates.

When it comes to special aquatic plants, water plants from Aquasabi are just the thing for you. We offer rarities from our own cultivating tanks or import them specifically. These plants are otherwise hard to come by, and most of them cannot be purchased from other shops. We have high quality standards, which make Aquasabi plants a good choice for aquascapers, planted tank enthusiasts and aquatic plant collectors who want to enrich their tanks with rare aquatic plants. Special mosses, particular stem plants, hard-to-come-by ferns or very rare forms of the genus Bucephalandra are only a few of the plants we are proud to offer.
