Ammania Gracilis (Thick RED Aquarium Plant)
Ammania Gracilis. Ammania Gracilis is a hardy red aquarium plant. It has leafs that have a bit more waviness to them then other red plants. It also had a comparatively 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.
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
So this was my 1st buy from Dustin's (Kind of stumbled upon it thru my hours of browsing aquascaping) but It was wonderful!!! Cheap shipping amazing plants, they kept me updated throughout the whole shipping ordeal and even threw in an extra 😍😍😍. This is definitely where I'm buying all my new aquarium plants from
Nice healthy bunch of stems. All plants in the order were awesome! Thanks Dustin and Dustin's Fish Tanks!! Well done!
Ammania Gracilis arrived in good condition. I love how it looks different from most other red plants I have e.g. ludwigia or AR varieties. The leaves are rounder than I thought but very nice. So far still in quarantine tank- will be moving into main planted tank soon. Colors look great so far.
Nice touch with the sealed bags. I think that helps a great deal with the plants.
I love this plant. I stuck a stem in three different tanks, and all the stems are growing well a few weeks later. One stem was placed in a co2 injected tank, one was placed in a discus tank (85F), and one was placed in a low tech guppy tank. It's a hardy plant with nice color.
