Found on Mauritius in 1992 by Tropica's founder, Holger Windeløv, the Lilaeopsis mauritiana is native to the island of Mauritius alone. Similar to the Lilaeopsis brasiliensis, this plant will grow slowly but radical pruning will promote thicker, denser growth.

This plants need a bit less light than the brasiliensis but should be planted the same way. Try planting at the foreground and let it carpet the front of your tank.

I used these as a foreground cover in my new setup. They have been in there now just over 1 month they are doing really well, putting out side shots, it wont be long before they need trimming back.

Lovely healthy plants. Very impressed with Aqua essentials for quality, packaging, and speedy service.

All plants I ordered from Aqua-Essentials have been in a perfect state when they arrived. They also started growing quickly once planted in my tank. Delivery speed was outstanding as usual. Very satisfied.

As always fantastic plant in excellent condition and expertly packaged. they have been in my tank a few weeks now and are growing and spreading, so much so I will soon have to trim them back a bit.
