Ammania senegalensis


  • 3 Stem
  • High Light
  • High CO2
  • Background Plant
  • Medium Growth Rate


Ammannia senegalensis has a leaf that is curved in a downward fashion in an arch. In order to achieve strong shoots the substrate should be nutrient rich, like Grow-Pro for plants, and it needs very strong lighting.  Ammania Senegalensis does much better in soft water. Can withstand temps from 53.6 to 86 degrees. Optimum growth temperature is 71.6 to 82.4 degrees.
Sent out right now with emersed growth. Plant will be green with large leaves. Once you plant it submersed in your tank, it will not take long to turn a nice red under high light. The leaves will also become narrow. This growth will only take around a week or two.
Do not let this plant break the waters surface. When it does it will put all of it’s energy into submersed growth and shed it’s immersed growth.
