Description: 

Limnophila sp. "Vietnam" is a relatively small stem plant with a creeping to bushy growth habit. It has been introduced to the hobby in the USA and Asia recently, and it was imported into Europe a short time ago, too.

The leaves of submersed L. sp. "Vietnam" are lineal to lanceolate, with an acute tip and a weakly serrate margin (3 to 4 teeth on each side), a length of 1.5 to 2.5 cm and a width of 1.5 to 2 mm. The leaves grow in whorls of 5 to 7 on the stem. The plant is of a light green colour; under strong light, the leaf midribs and stems are of a light reddish-brown.
