Ammania Senegalensis is a new plant to the hobby whose red leaves make a captivating fore or mid-ground contrast to green foliage. This plant grows wavy-edged oval leaves alternating up its stem. The leaves are brightly coloured and can display a range of coloration patterns, usually with dark, brick red being the predominant hue. Green, orange, yellow also tend to feature in this plant’s colouration.

To get the most desirable colour and growth, you must provide high lighting and rich nutrient levels. High iron content will bring out more red tones in the plant. CO2 injection is not required for the cultivation of this plant but can help it grow more robustly. The plant can be grown submersed or emersed.

Propagation can be achieved by taking cuttings from the main stem of the plant that is replanted into the substrate.
