Ammania Gracilis (Thick RED Aquarium Plant)
Ammania Gracilis is a hardy red aquarium plant. It's leaves are more wavy than other red plants. It also has a relatively thicker stem. Ammania will like a hard cut once it is growing taller and can be replanted down in the substrate as a new plant.
NOTE as 1-7-21 these plants are about half way converted to fully pink- the tops are read but turn green half way down....but are well on the way and healthy
What we are selling comes in a nice clump, but I recommend that you spread this plant out. Separate each stem and give it about a half of an inch space or more from the next stem to let it have some room to grow in. I would also recommend that you add some iron to your tank if you are looking to get more out of your RED in the Ammania Gracilis
Lighting: Needs moderate lighting to stay alive. The more lighting the better it will look.
Difficulty: I would rate Ammania a 3.5 on my 1-10 scale. 1 being it could grow in a toilet and 10 being impossible. It requires good light much like Ludwigia or other red plants. Though it's a little more susceptible to melt due to a lack of light
Quantity: 6-7 stems
I had never seen these before but these are IMPRESSIVE and I can’t stress that enough. Stem had sort of a wavy form to it but I’m sure with time it’ll grow straighter now that it’s in a permanent tank. The stems are super sturdy and built like tanks (perfect because my fish love to “redecorate”) but I have no concerns about this plant getting uprooted. Quite the impressive plant, colors were astonishing too and will only improve with time. Got a generous cluster of 6 of these, definitely recommend!
Was looking to add some vibrant red color to the background of my aquarium and came across the A. gracilis. I placed my order and received a few days later. I neglected to purchase the optional heat pack (it's January) and have been kicking myself ever since. It was a rookie mistake on my part and I admit it. The plants arrived stressed, leaves are melting like crazy, but the stems are thick and appear to be viable. I'm hoping these guys pull through. Regardless, my shipment arrived quickly, and I'm just delighted with the quality and service of DFT. Will buy again in the near future.
Got my plants, I love the care Dustin takes to get my plants to me. Should have ordered more moss, next time. The red plants are beautiful, and really make the aquarium pop! Very happy. 🥰
Plants are very. good!
First time shopping with Dustin'sFishTanks. This guy is the real deal. Plants and packaging all done right. Getting ready to set up a modest tank with just plants, and Dustin will get my business☺
