Limnophila Aromaticoides "Hybrid Purple"
*Notice* Please expect portion size in accordance with the photo from the sale as well as this Notice description! (7/13/18)
This is Limnophila Aromaticoides. This is just a separate cultivar of the Limnophila Aromatica we carry. When this plant isn't being utilized as a treatment, used for cuts and wounds in the wild or for it's ridiculously long list of MEDICAL USES, it makes for an absolutely beautiful aquarium plant!
This is a rare plant. You don't find it just anywhere. This Thailand Native plant is also used for essential oils, one of the many reasons it has it's name Aromaticoides.
Enough about all of the uses this thing has. Let's talk about how it's one of the prettiest plants I've seen. It's leaf coloration is so calming and pops with almost any other plant. It's beautiful but it's not easy to grow submerged. This is a super difficult plant. When it has high light it will produce beautiful red leaves with pink undersides all the way up the stalk. The bushier this guy gets, the more beautiful.
Your tank set up should be running a super intensive light, a hard water table (7.5 to 7.9 ph), and Co2 is highly suggested to promote it establishing itself quickly.
This plants growth rate is moderate to slow. So keep that in mind.
