Lobelia ‘mini’

Lobelia cardinalis 'small leaf'
  • Care Sheet

Lobelia is an ideal filler plant in both the foreground and midground area of an aquarium.  It has small, oval leaves which grow at a medium pace, and should eventually reach approximately 15 – 20 cm in height.


Small Leaf Lobelia Cardinalis makes an ideal filler plant for use between low foreground plants and tall background varieties. It looks especially good when planted in a row diagonally from the front to the back of the tank, in a ‘terraced’ arrangement.

In warmer climates, this plant can also be used on the edge of ponds. It is not very demanding of water parameters, but does require consistency. Avoid large swings in water parameters, and test your water regularly.

Once established, it can be propagated by replanting cuttings.
