Ammannia gracilis is a vibrantly coloured stem plant from West Africa. In the emersed form the plant is rather unremarkable with ovate green leaves. With good lighting, the plant displays a wonderful brown-red colouring under water. A good CO2 supply and nutrient-rich substrate are certainly important requirements for it to flourish magnificently. It can grow up to 60 cm tall, making this African stem plant suitable for the midground to background. Due to its rapid growth rate, the shoot tips should be replanted regularly.
