Description

A beautiful stem plant from the Malayan peninsula, often erroneously called Limnophila aromatica. This strong, fast-growing Limnophila is a true eye-catcher when planted in a group in the middle or background of a tank. Intensive light, a good nutrient and CO2 supply are important for the well-being of this plant.

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

Limnophila hippuridoides is a marshweed found under various names in trade for several years: "Limnophila aromatica", "L. aromaticoides", "L. hippuroides" (incorrectly written) and even "Gratiola officinalis" (a totally different species). L. hippuridoides is native to the Malayan peninsula (Malakka). It is closely related to L. aromatica and L. aromaticoides.

It mainly differs from the other two species in flower and fruit characteristics, however, there are also some differences to be observed in the submersed forms (according to Kasselmann 2010generalreferences#1):

- Limnophila aromatica: 2-3 leaves per stem node, of variable colour, reddish hues or green (very variable species).

- Limnophila aromaticoides (often treated as synonym of L. (read more)

When it arrived I expected the plant to be a bit taller. After planting it took off like crazy and its getting bigger. A full grown plant has got really nice purple colors. (read more)
