There are several varieties of this plant. The variety grown by Tropica is
said to come from Malaysia. It is characterised by its narrow green leaves,
which are purple underneath. Like most other red plants, the colour depends on a
supply of intensive light. CO2 addition promotes growth significantly,
and it also thrives in hard water. Limnophilla aromatica is easy to
propagate by cuttings.
