Limnophila aquatica – Limnophila Indicia – Ambulia


Out of stock


Limnophila aquatica, also known as Ambulia or Limnophila Indicia, is a beautiful aquarium plant circled by light-green and finely branched leaves from South-East Asia. In the right growing conditions with added CO2 and a nutritious bottom, this plant grows fast and can become 25-50 cm long, and each stem up to 15 cm wide. In good light, it forms horizontal side shoots and becomes attractive and bushy — most decorative when several stems are planted in a small group. In open aquariums, it sometimes sends shoots above the water surface, forming small blue flowers.

Planting Instructions

Stem plants are usually cuttings of plants that generally don’t come with roots. This is how stem plants are sold in the aquatic plant industry, although at times, my stem plants may come with roots because I have been growing them out. All stem plants come with a plant weight that holds the plant in place and is safe for your tank.

To plant, just let the weight lay on your substrate, and the stems will grow roots throughout your substrate. You can also plant the tips, about 1/4″ in your substrate if you prefer.
