Description

This beautiful, big stem plant from tropical Asia has elongate leaves with purple underside and rather green upper side. It develops wider stems than the similar Limnophila hippuridoides. It?s best colorated under intensive light. It also thrives in hard water, but CO2 addition is recommendable as it promotes growth significantly.

When hobbyists talk about Limnophila aromatica, they usually indeed mean L. hippuridoides, originating from the Malayan peninsula. This plant, often wrongly called "L. hippuroides", has a significantly larger number of leaves per whorl than L. aromatica (6 to 8, sometimes even more). When under strong lights, it is of an intensive, beautiful deep red, with pink leaf undersides.
The real Limnophila aromatica, however, is not very widely spread in the aquarium hobby and its habit and looks are less striking than those of L. hippuridoides. In its submersed form, it has 2-3(-4?) leaves per node. It is a very variable species, there are green forms and those with different reddish hues. As its scientific name suggests, its leaves have a more or less aromatic scent when crushed, as they contain essential oils (most prominently, limonene). (read more)
