Description: Ammania Gracilis is one of the larger stem plants at AquaLabs, with a very thick stem and large wavy leaves. Depending on the conditions it is grown in, its colour can range from a light orange to dark red. Generally, more intense lighting and nitrate limitation will bring our deeper red colours.

Difficulty: As with all aquarium plants, Co2 injection and appropriate fertilisation are recommended for optimal health and growth. Ammania gracilis is considered a 'moderate' difficulty aquarium plant. It can grow without Co2. But stronger lighting is recommended for the best appearance.

Emersed Growth: Ammania is easy to grow in an emersed state and converts easily to a submersed form.
