Limnophila aromatica


Limnophila aromatica

Price $4.99 (bunch of 5-6 stems)
The extremely polymorphic (variable) species Limnophila aromatica can be found growing in swampy or boggy soil in its native region of southeastern Asia. It is a relative newcomer to the aquarium hobby, as it has only recently been imported. The form featured here was originally described as L. hippuridoides (not "L. hippuroides"). In some older literature, it may be labeled erroneously as Gratiola officinalis. This species is gradually becoming more commonly available, and can presently be purchased through a few online aquatic plant retailers. It can also be obtained easily though hobbyists who maintain it.
