This is a really lovely looking plant and quite different from your average one too. It certainly stands out when looking into our plant tents. The Limnophila rugosa looks a bit like the herb Basil and is most suited when planted in the mid ground.

It's very fresh looking and definitely catches the eye and unlikely you will see this in any other shops around the UK.

Turned up in fantastic condition, is doing really well in my fluval flex under the stock light + some CO2 and ferts. Mine was actually four separate stems, so I managed to cover quite a large area and they are already starting to grow out well after just a week of being planted. Very nice interesting addition to an aquarium!

good healthy plant with a decent amount of roots. Love how lush and green these are. Removed them from the little basket and media to discover I had a few of them so I could split them and place around my aquarium. Service was great and I was kept informed by email.

Sure thing. Rugosa is relatively easy to grow and suitable for a wide range of conditions.

Hi, This plant came with my rocks/wood/plant set and seems to be growing well after 2 wks ie it is coming out of the tank.My question is, how do you control its growth; do you 'pinch' out the top or do you cut near the highest leaf? Any advice would be appreciated. Cheers.


With plants like these I suggest you trim approximately 50% off every few weeks. This makes sure they stay nice, bushy and compact

It may be a daft question, but is it okay to trim the roots of this and other plants that come from the side shoots?


not a daft question at all. You can trim the roots without any problems.



Needs planting in substrate

Hi, I bought 3 or so of these plants I followed advice and split the pots and replanted the shoots into my sand substrate, the leaves are looking very droopy and turning brown, I'm using micro lift liquid co2 and fertiliser , co2 daily and fertilizer every other day. Any advice on this please.


Sounds like you've upset them when splitting - how long's your lighting on for and how much liquid carbon are you dosing?

I am using an aquasky system, it is set on auto, so it is on for a good 10 hours, though it does dim in the evening. The liquid co2 amount I add is 4/5 mill daily. Thanks for you help


Reduce to 8 hours

5ml = 250l tank - is that yours?

Yes, I'm dosing that, 5 mill for 220 litre tank. I have reduced the lighting time, that's a complicated lighting system. Thank you for your a
