Ammannia gracilis

Ammania gracilis is a marsh plant in the wild, and originates in large areas of Africa. Under excellent growing conditions Ammania gracilis is a beautiful addition to the aquarium. It exhibits a bronze to orange color depending on the lighting. This is a plant that does best with strong light and supplemental CO2 as well as good nutrient supply but if you provide those, you can be rewarded with a beautiful stem plant with a lot of color.
