DOOA STYLE #3 An aquatic appearance

On my commuting route, there used to be a plot where Ottelia alismoides grew naturally. But recently, it was buried because of farmland development. While feeling disappointed about this, I was comforted by the gently curled leaves with exotic tiger stripes, placed at the corner of my desk. The main feature this time is Ottelia ulvifolia, which belongs to the same genus as O. alismoides, and familiarly known as “African Ottelia” in Japan. I planted it in DOOA Tropical River Soil and added 2 pieces of Bottom Plus two weeks after planting. The leaves are easily damaged, but do not cut damaged leaves immediately unless they are rotting away. Always keep 10 leaves or so until clean foliage is fully grown.

Ottelia ulvifolia

It is widely distributed in the African continent, and there are variations in the amount of spots, the shape and color of leaves, depending on the origin. This type of O. ulvifolia is easy to obtain, and the brown stripes that clearly appear on its transparent light green leaves look very attractive.
