Hemigraphis colorata broad leaf is a very popular plant for the aquarium. This is because of its bright crimson undersides of its leaves and dark green upper surface.The leaves on this plant also have a hammered apearance which makes the plant more attractive. This is a fairly easy plant to grow in the aquarium as long as it has a rich substrate and good lighting. This plant propagates easily by cuttings that form adventitious roots on the nodes of the slightly hairy stems.
