Description

Najas sp. "Roraima" has not been identified yet. This waternymph comes from the Brazilian state of Roraima. It was probably first imported into Japan, and it isn't well-known yet in Europe. The Roraima waternymph has stiff arched very narrow toothed leaves, branches readily, which gives it a relatively compact growth habit, and it is not as brittle and not as invasive as e.g. Najas guadalupensis. It can be compared to Najas indica. Especially decorative due to its bushy growth habit and its striking reddish-brown leaf teeth, which look like a dotted pattern on light green to reddish-brownish ground. Sometimes the shoot tips are of a lush red. The Roraima waternymph does not grow many roots, like most other Najas species. It grows floating shortly below the water surface as well as planted into the ground. You can also stick it between rocks or into crevices in the driftwood.

Najas sp. "Roraima" is a still unidentified water nymph from the Brazilian state Roraima. It was probably first introduced in the market from Japan, and it was only imported to Europe recently (2009?). Its leaves are rigid, curving, with a serrate margin, its stems ramify readily, and the plant is not as brittle and invasive as e.g. Najas guadalupensis. It resembles Najas indica a little. This plant's compact growth makes it especially decorative, as well as the dark brown colour of the leaf serra that gives the leaves a dotted pattern on light green to reddish-brown ground. The shoot tips may assume a wine-red hue under intensive light.

This Najas from Roraima does not form many roots, just like the other species of the genus. It grows freely floating just under the water surface as well as planted into the ground, and it can also be stuck in crevices in rocks or driftwood. (read more)
