Alternanthera reineckii "roseafolia

Larger picture
Alternanthera reineckii  needs plenty of light to grow and form dark-red leaves. In open aquariums it grows willingly up through the surface, and like other difficult plants growth improves considerably if CO2 is added. Shortage of micronutrients results in pale leaves. Like other stem plants A. reineckii  is best in groups.

Ambulia ( Lymnophila )

Larger picture
Limnophila sessiliflora isa fast growing plant with beautiful light-green filamentous leaves which very much resembles the popular Cabomba species. In contrast to Cabomba, Limnophila sessiliflora does not require much light to grow andthus it can replace Cabomba in situations where this light demanding plant does not thrive well. Limnophila sessiliflora can take up a lot of inorganic nitrogen and phosphorus because it is fast growing, and the shoot apex which often needs to be cut can easily be replanted in the substrate. It develops adventitious shoots whenthe top is cut and becomes more bushy, though some of thenew shoots tend to creep along the bottom. Limnophila means 'swamp friend' and in Nature Limnophila sessiliflora grows in shallow water of lakes andalong stream and river banks.

Ammannia Gracilis

  • This is an awesome red and yellow plant that throws beautiful colors
  • This plant has been made popular by Takashi Amano in his beautiful aquatic aquascapes
  • This plant does much better in high lighting and will flourish with co2
  • This is for one freshwater stem
    Prefers higher lighting and will flourish with co2



  • Egeria densa is often called Anacharis
  • A great plant than can be floated in the aquarium or pond or planted so it roots.
  • Great as a background filler.
  • 4-6 freshwater aquarium plants

Asian Ambulia

  • This is a thin leaved Plant that can grow under med to high lighting. 
  • It can be propagated by cuttings.  This plant actually seems to glow under proper lighting as you can tell from the pictures.  Will thrive with a rich substate and co2.  Co2 is not a must though
  • (4-6 freshwater aquarium plants)

Somewhat like asian ambulia but more bushier with less space between nodes

Baby Tears / Micranthemum umbrosum or Hemianthus micranthemoides

Larger picture

Hemianthus micranthemoidesis nice ornamental plant in small aquaria which looks much like a 'mini' Egeria. It is fast growing and requires therefore relatively high light and a nutrient rich substrate. It is also a valuable plant in terraria where it forms a beautiful carpet at the land water interphase. The plant is easily reproduced by cutting offthe apex which is replanted in the substrate. Hemianthus micranthemoides is often sold for Micranthemum umbrosum and a widespread synonym for Hemianthus micranthemoides is Micranthemum micranthemoides.

Cardamine lyrata is actually a marsh plant. But it is also a familiar aquarium plant which thrives under water. A characteristic trailing growth form makes it highly decorative, and ''water roots'' often form on the plant itself. Plant in groups, and make sure the water temperature does not exceed 28 degrees for long (this makes the leaves much smaller and the plant more leggy). Also suitable in garden ponds in the summer.

Diplidis Diandra (Blood stargrass) Usually grade B


Didiplis diandra is a delicate and difficult but also very beautiful aquarium plant with opposite leaves in rows of two. In its' natural habitat of  Northeast America it occupies the banks of rivers and lakes where it develops bothsubmerged, floating and emergent shoots. It does no tresemble any other aquarium plant, and thus it creates avery conspicuous contrast when planted in groups of 3-5shoots in the foreground or in the middle of the aquarium. On the other hand, they should not be planted too close to each other since the lower leaves are then lost due to light deficiency. As a rule of thumb, D.diandra is offered enough light only when the leaf apex is coloured red. D. diandra prefers a fine-grained substrate and CO2 enrichment of the soft and acid water is absolutely necessary to assure optimum growth. D. diandra maybe reproduced by cuttings.

Eusteralis stellata Amano plant

Larger picture
Eusteralis stellata is a very beautiful aquarium plant which differs from all other aquatic plants. The 10-cm long narrow leaves are placed around the stem much like spokes in a wheel and the lower leaf side is heavily violet at optimum growth conditions. However, it is quite difficult to culture and requires very high light, soft water and CO2 enrichment of the water to thrive. Eusteralis stellata is a brilliant indicator for micronutrient,especially iron. If the aquarium is short of iron, the leaves will turn light green to yellowish but a few days after iron addition the colour will reappear on new leaves. Occasionally, the plant suddenly stops growing but after a while adventitious shoots will normally develop and the plant resumes growth.
Author: Tropica
  • Eusteralis stellata is a most unusal plant featured many times in Amano's aquascapes.
  • This RARE plant has stems which are thick and green.
  • Its beautiful wispy leaves will change color from the bottom to the top.
  • The lower leaves will be bright green and the top will thropw wonderful purple hues depending on nutrients and lighting.
  • The more lighting the better. Suggest power compacts or metal halide lighting and co2
