Description

Reading Time: 1

This Lilaeopsis species demands less light than Lilaeopsis brasiliensis, and stays also low (5-10 cm “lawn”). Tropica’s founder, Holger Windeløv, found it on Mauritius in 1992. The plants height and distance between its leaves depend on the light intensity. The more light it gets, the lower the plant and the denser the leaves. The runners spread round the aquarium. Should be planted like Lilaeopsis brasiliensis.
