Nesaea crassicaulis is a beautiful and highly recommended aquarium
plant, although it has high demands for light. It has red-brown, cognac-coloured
leaves. Grows best in soft and slightly acidic water. Make sure the lower leaves
get sufficient light, otherwise they will die off. This plant is similar to
Amania species and is often mistaken for them. But in the aquarium it can be
recognised by its yellow-green stems. Easy to propagate by side shoots or
cuttings, which can be cut off and planted in the bottom.
