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.
NOTE as of 8.31.20- 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
These are not looking good. I hope they will recover! Not exactly sure what happened to them, but brownish with leaves falling off.
These plants came in a little green but were also described that in a recent update to the plant description. I'm happy with my purchase and I'm glad the team at DFT stands by their products and gives the customer a heads up to the current state of the product. I'm excited to watch these grow and turn red!
I thought the plants I received were fabulous. So pretty! I ordered from another place, previously , and was not happy. This order went above and beyond. Thank you!
Once again, Dustin and crew have outdone themselves with this beautiful ammonia gracilis. He always gives you more than expected, and the quality, size, and condition of this plant was excellent, despite shipping into this Florida heat. Dustin in the only one I will buy plants from
Plants were in great shape
