Join me on my journey as I find my way in the aquatic plant industry.
That is one beautiful plant! Will the leaves become serrated when submerged? The leaf shape is quite unique, almost like garden mint. I can see some great merit in aquascaping for this plant. Nice!
Finally got my sample from Jennifer - I am really excited. I have put it into my discus tank where my Limnophilas tend to do better than in my Dutch tank as most of them seem to like the higher temp (27.5°C). It doesn't seem to do much but I'm patient. Do you keep it warm when submersed? I wonder if this particular species might not take to the higher temp in the discus tank?
OK, I think it is Limnophila rugosa. Here are some links for you. http://www.efloras.org/object_page.aspx?object_id=3504&flora_id=2http://www.efloras.org/florataxon.aspx?flora_id=2&taxon_id=200020700The plant is very handsome and growing into a nice patch. Looks better if kept short. I'll post an article on it in my blog once I have some good quality pics.
