Description

Limnophila sp. "Vietnam" has only been known in Europe since around 2010 in the aquarium hobby, and it is still hard to come buy. This delicate plant is a great discovery for aquascaping. Given that it is under intensive light it develops creeping well-ramifying 3 to 4 cm wide shoots, which makes it a great ground cover. Dense populations grow higher after some time, comparable to the much slower-growing Staurogyne repens. With L. sp. "Vietnam" you can create dense bushes that can be kept in form by regular trimming. This plant is especially well-suited for "mountain" layouts, e.g. creeping down a hill or as light green accent between rocks and driftwood. Its decorative appearance is enhanced by its very narrow, pointed leaves growing in whorls and the star-like shoot tips. Under strong light, the central veins of the leaves and the stems can assume a reddish hue.

Limnophila sp. "Vietnam" is a relatively small stem plant with a creeping to bushy growth habit. It has been introduced to the hobby in the USA and Asia recently, and it was imported into Europe a short time ago, too.

The leaves of submersed L. sp. "Vietnam" are lineal to lanceolate, with an acute tip and a weakly serrate margin (3 to 4 teeth on each side), a length of 1.5 to 2.5 cm and a width of 1.5 to 2 mm. The leaves grow in whorls of 5 to 7 on the stem. The plant is of a light green colour; under strong light, the leaf midribs and stems are of a light reddish-brown.

Sehr schön, jedoch aber eher für Leute mit Erfahrung. Die Pflanze ist was den Transport angeht heikel, sie darf nicht lange im Becher bleiben. Auch im Aquarium kann sie zicken. (read more)
