Limnophila sessiliflora is a good and undemanding plant which is a good alternative to Cabomba, which demands a lot of light. The plant often grows leggy in poor light, but this can be counteracted to some extent by stimulating growth by CO2 addition. Most beautiful when planted in groups. In good growing conditions it sends out runners and spreads across the bottom. Limnophila sessiliflora used to be called “Ambulia”.
The pruning of Limnophila sessiliflora are similar to many other stem plants. Topping and replanting is the best method. Letting it reach the surface allows it to produce many side shoots where it will readily produce emergent growth. This plant grows like the weed it is, however, so frequent pruning will be necessary (especially in high light aquariums). The development of flowers is rare, but the single blue, violet, pink or lavender flowers are produced on the emergent part of the stem.
