One of my favorite forground plants. Grows great in 2.0 wpg and higher, co2 isnt a must but helps alot for fast growth. Easy propagation, just cut off and replant like most stem plants.

I had a plant that looked exactly like this. After a few weeks, the leaves started to grow differently. Later, I found out it was dwarf cup rotala, which can have many different leaf shapes and sometimes looks almost exactly like this plant. on my rotala, the bottom leaves are round while the top leaves are thin.

This plant is no longer Ammania. It has been correctly identified as a true Rotala indica

This plant looks like a miniature bacopa with smaller leaves with pinkish-reddish tinge. Looks great as a midground plant
