RE: foxtail a.k.a. limnophilia indica / Limnophilia aquatica



:) hope this help in your foxtail experience :)  As you know it's a very
bush plant.  I have it listed as an ambulia,  requires strong light and
difficult to grow.  Also have "will display compact, luxuriant growth
only if the light is good and if iron-containing fertilizer is added
regulary"

Family:  Scrophulariacea (figwort family);    range: india, sri lanka;
tollerates soft water better than hard water;  light 75 wats / 25 gallon
(100L), water:  75F-80F, 3-12 dCH; ph 6.5-7.5;  Propagation is done
by cutting ;) of the top 5-6 inches;  oh and it also states it's
recomened for HIGH tanks, so this rules out my 20L tank :~(  Goes on to
say that placment is great in front of a dark background and growth is
compact if conditions are good, apparently you have good conditions for
this plant and I would suggest that you just trim it back and start
filling up a corner with it :)

It is a very beautiful plant


Hope this helps;
