Ammannia Gracilis

A. gracilis is a moderately demanding plant which will not show its full potential unless its requirements are met. Lighting should be moderate. This stem plant prefers mildly acidic, moderately soft water although it is quite adaptable to more extreme water conditions. If there is not enough iron in the water column, the foliage of this plant will become pale. This large, colorful stem plant, when under good growing conditions, grows rapidly upwards toward the water’s surface. Pruning should be done by topping and replanting the more robust top portions. Propagation should be done by removing side shoots from the main stem plant with a pair of scissors.

Transitioning process – emersed to submersed growth in your aquarium
• Provide good water conditions for your plants
• Dose a respectable aquatic fertilizer for your plants , follow the instructions from the manufacturer
• Provide the correct lighting spectrum , based on the plants needs
• Prune dead leaves and stems constantly
• A Co2 system is a good addition into your aquarium for the plants to flourish
• Conduct 20-30% water changed once a week to ensure good water conditions
• Patience is key for the transition to take place


In a few days, after placing your plants in the aquarium you will notice some of the leaves start to melt and fall away.
This means the transition process has started. Please note the plants might look DEAD, but they are fully alive, so do not panic. After a few days you will notice new growth will appear and the plant will fully change its form into submersed growth. Continuous trimming and fertilization is needed for the plants to thrive in your aquarium. All plants have specific needs but if you follow the general instructions on our labels the plant will transition well and will eventually succeed and prosper in your aquarium.
