LIMNOBIUM LAEVIGATUM


  • Aquarium plant from tissue culture in closed cup.
  • Limnobium laevigatum from South America is a decorative floating plant that is particularly suitable for open aquariums.
  • 1-5 cm tall and leaves from 5-15 cm wide.
  • It is also good in traditional aquariums, because the fine, long and decorative roots provide protection to gouramies and other surface fish that like the roots of floating plants.
  • If there are enough nutrients in the water and the light intensity is good, new leaves will appear above the water surface.
  • It may become necessary to remove some to avoid that the plants beneath it still gets some light.
  • When the nutrient level in the water decreases, it will grow much slower which makes it a great indicator of the available nutrients
