Propagation

This plant is propagated by taking cuttings from the side shoots of the mother plant. When the cuttings are removed, break off the bottom two pairs of leaves to reveal a length of bare stem. This can now be placed carefully into the substrate taking care not to crush the stem. In a few weeks the cuttings will develop a root system to create new plants.

Difficulty

Medium

Short Description

This plant makes a great addition to the aquarium but it does demand high lighting levels. The leaves are a reddish brown colour and it displays yellowish stems. Make sure the light can reach the bottom leaves or they will drop from the stems. When planting. Allow room around each plant to give them room to grow.
