Description:

Hemigraphis repanda is best used as a terrarium plant.  Striking purple colors and narrow leaves create an interesting plant overall.  Sometimes referred to as Dragon Flame, Hemigraphis repanda can be submerged in an aquarium environment for short periods of time. After submerging allow the plant to regenerate by taking it out of the water and growing in an emersed environment.
