Description

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.
