Limnophila hippuridoides has numerous slender needle-like leaves and a vibrant purple hue and it is included in "the most decorative bunch plant" category. However, it is not a plant that can be passively grown. It requires constant dosing of fertilizers, especially iron, high light and CO2 to achieve that beautiful color. Propagates easy by cuttings.
