From Asia, this undemanding, fast-growing plant, has been long known within the aquarium hobby. This fine-leaved green stem plant is a quality alternative to the more demanding Cabomba species; now illegal in New Zealand. Let’s not dwell on their outlaw status, just buy some Ambulia instead!


Ambulia is adaptable and found growing in mountain streams, lakes, rivers – even damp soils. It can reach over 40 cm (16 inches) in height. Submerse leaves are different from the emerse forms; dark green and lance-shaped.

It's common to plant Ambulia in bunches for aquariums, as they're a little shy on their own. Requires moderate to high lighting, and nutrient-rich water. More light results in better growth and appearance. Benefits from the addition of CO2. It prefers 3-25 dKH and a pH of 6-7.5. Propagate by cuttings.


To ensure you get the best quality plant, we order plants in fresh at the end of each week, for next week delivery. Straight to your door. This way, we assure you receive healthy, vibrant plants. Doing this means we can also lower our prices for you. Please expect delivery to be Thursday of the following week that you ordered.

A lockdown lift for my fish!

Arrived quickly and looks great in the tank, taking off already. Thanks!


Came in a good package and the plants were all healthy, its already taking off nicely. Will hopefully use up excess nutrients to keep my brown diatoms under control.
Was so impressed i have already ordered more plants from TFR.
