Description

The Indian Ambulia is long known in the aquarium hobby, however it's rarely cultivated. Limnophila indica is an aquatic plant from the tropics and subtropics of Africa, Asia and Australia. This species is quite variable; our plant has quite small leaf whorl diameters, a dense foliage and short internodes. It looks like a miniature version of Limnophila aquatica.

This Limnophila species is fast growing and quite undemanding. Medium lighting is sufficient, however the vivid light green shoots get heads with slightly reddish hues under strong lighting. Limnophila indica is easily propagated by head cuttings, furthermore it develops runner-like shoots creeping above the ground on which upright stems appear. In this way, the plant forms a lush, extended stand in a quite short time.

With its quite small shoots, Limnophila indica looks especially nice as an expanded stand in the aquarium midground. It needs enough space to spread out; regular trimming of the the stems and runners is recommendable. With its finely pinnate, bright green foliage, it contrasts effectively to plants with different texture and coloration.

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

Limnophila indica is one of those Limnophilas that have finely pinnate leaves in their submersed form. This form resembles L. heterophylla and L. sessiliflora but is very variable. There are several varieties of this species in cultivation, coming from different regions of the earth. One of them differs from both aforementioned species by its distinctly finer leaf pinna and the smaller distances of the stem nodes (see fig. 1). L. indica, L. heterophylla and L. sessiliflora can, however, only safely be discerned from each other when their emersed form and especially the flower characteristics are considered (see Kasselmann 2010).

L. indica is widely distributed in the African and Asian tropics, growing submersed or semi-emersed in different types of flowing and stagnant waterbodies. In Rio Guaporé in south-western Brazil, Christel Kasselmann found an introduced populations. (read more)
