Limnophila heterophylla is one of those Limnophilas that have finely pinnate leaves in their submersed form. This form resembles L. indica and L. sessiliflora and can only safely be discerned from them when their emersed form and especially the flower characteristics are considered (see Kasselmann 2010).
This Limnophila is widely spread in the Asian tropics and subtropics from Pakistan to China and Borneo. It has been found in rivulets as well as rice paddies and ponds with hard to soft water.
When cultivated as aquarium plant, the demands and use of L. heterophylla are about the same as those of L. indica and L. sessiliflora.
