Limnophila hippuridoides is originally from Asia and can grow to a decent height of 20-50cm high and often 6-10cm wide – so 1 plant takes up a decent amount of space. A simple plant, able to adjust to various conditions makes it suitable for hobbyists who have some experience but if you're a new comer to the hobby and are adventurous, then give it a go.
The amazing coloured leaves are green with a red-violet underside, and the whole leaf turns red-violet under ideal growth conditions - and this is part of the BIG appeal. It is a vibrant growing plant, which willingly creates new, solid shoots from the base. Thinning of the oldest and longest shoots is recommended, in order to make room for such new shoots.
A real favourite at Aqua Essentials.
