Limnophila brownii is endemic to the northern part of Australia. This Ambulia species is little known as aquarium plant and rarely available in the trade. With its very fine leaf pinnae, it resembles Limnophila aquatica and L. indica. Its leaf whorls are smaller than those of L. aquatica. Good lighting provided, the shoot tips develop bronze-brown hues. The stem is often brown-red coloured.

Under favourable conditions, the Darwin River Ambulia is a fast-growing plant. CO2 injection, regular nutrient supply and medium to strong lighting are recommendable. As well as all stem plants, this species can be propagated by stem cuttings, occasionally it also develops runner-like horizontal shoots with vertical stems.

This rare Ambulia is a nice eyecatcher as dense group in the midground to background. According to its origin, it is an appropriate plant for the design of "geographically correct" Australia-themed tanks.

Please be aware that the submerse form of this plant could contain snails and other invertebrates.



Aquasabi is our own brand, under which we offer high-quality products with a very good price-performance ratio. Carefully selected CO2 diffusers, CO2 bubble counters or lily pipes are just some of the items we sell under this brand and which will surely add to the value und the beauty of any aquascape. For this reason, many aquascapers and planted tank enthusiasts use products by Aquasabi.

Besides the good price-performance ratio, our main focus is on the satisfaction of our customers. This is the reason why our doors are always open for those who need help with our products.

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.
