Ammania sp. ‘Bonsai’ is best described as a compact, moderate growing version of Bacopa caroliniana. Plant in small groups and trim often. Cuttings may be re-planted in the group to achieve a more dense group or carpet. At high light may the tip of the stems become reddish, at lower light will the leaves become larger and the plant less compact. Ammania sp. ‘Bonsai’ are particularly suitable for nano-aquariums.

Great little plant hopefully will spread around tank nicely

Great plant, the pots are quite small, so they will take several months to really reach a good height. But as long as you are patient, then all good. Very good quality, I like it they are guaranteed free from snails. That was particularly important to me. Overall really happy. It's taken about 4 months for them to get to about 20 to 25cm.

So pleased with this I ordered another. Quality excellent and man do you get a LOT of plant for your money.

Different from all the pictures I've seen of ammania bonsai, but I would guess that is not Aquaessentials fault. I've bought from two different brands and suppliers, and when this plant develops it looks more like Rotala rotundifolia or an hybrid than like Rotala/Ammania bonsai.

Gorgeous plant. I bought this and some HC Cuba from the 'Tissue Culture Plants' range and the quality is exceptional: bright, healthy leaves and strong roots. Although this range is a little more expensive, the difference in quality is noticeable. I hate buying plants and having to pick dead bits off before I plant them. Would definitely recommend! Delivery was next day too.
