Bacopa Salzmannii also known as Bacopa sp. Araguaia or Bacopa sp. Purple. This eye-catching Bacopa species can be developed a unique colors range from pink, violet to purple in submerged form. Here at Aquarium Plants Factory, we cultivated this species emerged in our greenhouse so it can readily be available for commercial trade and make the plants become more popular and ready for everyone. When growing above water, the leaf will be green in color and look similar to the well-known Bacopa Caroliniana. Under an optimal submerged environment, the leaf will slowly transition to develop a stunning color. It's recommended to set up a high-tech aquarium with a lot of CO2, micro, and macronutrient for this beautiful aquatic plant.

        They’re taking off!

        This is the second time I‚Äôve purchased Bacopa salzmanii ‚Äėpurple‚Äô from APF - the first time I killed it with a bleach dip trying to get rid of staghorn algae lol. When you get the plant, it‚Äôs in it‚Äôs emerged state. It will be green. This is normal, guys. Once submerged, with the right nutrients, CO2, and lighting, it turns purple. I promise. It takes awhile, but its worth it. In my tank, it turns a dusty dark mauve-ish color on the tops of the leaves. I plant it where it will get the most light right under my strip light.

        Pictured here, with the danio, is the salzmanii that I received a week ago. No melt, strong and healthy. No purple yet, but it literally takes months.

        The second photo I‚Äôm attaching is from a plant I got months ago. It is the remnant of my first order showing the change to purple. This plant was propagated from a tiny cutting that I salvaged after killing most of it with bleach. No filters, no editing. It‚Äôs purple and still being propagated from that 1‚ÄĚ cutting I salvaged. Oh this is even without CO2 btw, this is in my low tech shrimp tank.

        My plants do not look purple at all.

        Hello. Because they are still emerged plant. They will turn purple color when grow fully submerged, in optimal condition, high tech aquarium.


        There are several varieties of Bacopa Salzmannii 'Purple' around, some of them are "a bit" purple, rarely they are truly purple. This APF-grown variety arrived in a beautiful fresh-cut condition (as if it had not been shipped at all, just cut fresh in a garden) and after 3 days the plants already gave new leaves at the top. They are astonishingly, truly, dark purple!!!
