Minimum Lighting: Moderate
Temperature Range: 71.6-82.4°F

Ammania Senegalensis, due to its coloration is also known as copper ammania, originates from Western Senegal.  This is a very beautiful and striking plant, guaranteeing to draw attention in your tank.  The leaves of this plant will display multitude of colors from light to dark green mixed with light to dark red, even maroon or crimson red.  The more intense the lighting the more intense red coloration the plant's leaves will exhibit.  Under good conditions, with proper lighting and fertilization, this plant will grow fast.  The best placement is probably in the background but it can also be planted mid-ground.  A. Senegalensis looks best planted in bunches. When planting, separate each stem and plant it individually.  Propagation is by cuttings.

    My favorite

    Posted by Kendra on 28th May 2020

    Words can't describe how magical this plant is. They came to me in thick, wavy stalks but the leaves seemed like just ordinary back row green material, BUT since being planted a week ago, they've straighten out, blossomed (literally), and have taken on a pink hue. From above, they look like flowers! They are my absolute favorite out of the five plants I bought from Modern Aquarium.

    Ammania Senegalensis

    Posted by Curtis on 7th May 2020

    I received the 2 bunches of Ammania Senegalensis. Like the other plants I ordered the roots have been cut off leaving about 3/4" of roots on the plants, which makes it very hard to plant them in an aquarium or pond.

    The stem is very red and at this point the leaves are a bit more green than the photo. It is in great shape and doing very well in the aquarium. Plant was full and healthy with multiple stems. Very happy.

    Arrived already with a full, deep red color and strong leaves. I feared as a novice I would not be able to maintain either the color or fullness. Fortunately, I knew enough to ensure I bought root tabs for iron supplementation (iron being responsible for the red hue!) Even before the tabs arrived, the plants were wildly setting down roots within a couple of days, which was awesome! They are a strong red splash against the driftwood and taller background greenery.

    Aquarium plants

    Posted by Cheryl on 7th Apr 2020

    I have purchased numerous and varying types of aquarium plants from Modern Aquarium. The plants arrive in perfect and beautiful condition. They are also quite large and, oftentimes, I receive more plants than I purchased. I recommend this company VERY highly and compliment them highly for the excellence of their plants.

    Healthy plants

    Posted by Anna on 5th Nov 2019

    The plants came very healthy and fresh looking. They don’t seem to have as much hint of red as in the picture.
