This Lagenandra from Sri Lanka is a rather rare aquarium plant. It develops an upright leaf rosette; due to its slow growth it stays small for a long time. The leaves are dark-green and silvery shining on the upper surface. Full-grown plants get about 40 cm tall and are recommended for the midground and background of the aquarium. This species prefers rather higher temperatures between 24 and 28 °C. It can be propagated by cutting the strong creeping rhizome. Lagenandra thwaitesii is also well suited for paludariums. When it grows emersed, occasionally its interesting brown-red inflorescences appear.
