Ammannia gracilis is a very attractive and popular aquarium plant among the aquarium enthusiasts due to its brilliant coloration, hardiness and relatively less troublesome growing requirements. It is also known as Red ammannia, Large ammannia, Delicate ammania and Pink ammannia.
It is orginated from West Africa where it is found in floodplains, marshes, streams and riverbanks. In nature, it prefers to grow with very powerful shoots in sandy soils with minimum nutrients. It is a palustris plant and it can grow in both emerged and submerged conditions. In submerged condition, the leaves are elongated and narrow with red and brown in color while in emerged condition, the leaves become shorter, round and dark olive green in color.
Ammania gracilis has a bare, fleshy and erect stem that extends up to 60 cm in length. The stem bears narrow and wavy leaves which are arranged in opposite direction. The leaves which grow over water surface are linear or back-ovate shape with olive green in color while the underwater leaves have a lanceolate shape.
The color of the leaves vary from a pale green to a bronzy red. These color variation mainly depends on the light intensity and nutrients. The length of water surface leaf is 2-6 cm and width is 1-1.8 cm and the length of underwater leaf is 7-1 cm and width is 0.7-1.8 cm.
Ammania Gracilis can easily propagate in aquarium condition. It reproduces by seeds or cuttings of stem and side shoots on a substrate.
