This Lilaeopsis species demands less light than Lilaeopsis brasiliensis. Tropica?s founder, Holger Windel¯v, found it on Mauritius in 1992. The plant?s height and distance between its leaves depend on the light intensity. The more light it gets, the lower the plant and the denser the leaves. The runners spread round the aquarium, and growth is more compact when planted in a pot or between stones or other objects. Should be planted like Lilaeopsis brasiliensis.
