The original Hygrophila corymbosa. An undemanding plant for large aquariums, which thrives in almost any conditions. If it is not pruned it easily grows above the water surface, where it forms dark-green leaves and beautiful blue flowers. This makes it particularly suitable for open aquariums. It is most beautiful in groups, but the shoots must not be planted too close, because this will prevent light reaching the lower leaves. [TROPICA]
i am not sure why this plant is labeled as having a hight light requirement. Mine grows very well under W on a 20 gallon no C02 and no fertz. I can t grow duckweed but this plant is doing fine with great roots and lime coloured leaves.
I have some of this, the leaves are large and an orangey/brown at the surface. However the leaves are spreading across the surface and i want to trim it, how do i do this? Where should i cut, can i cut the main straight stem? I just want to be careful as it is growing well and has very thick stems compared to hygro. polysperma or elodea.
This is an awesome plant my otos love it. It is so easy to grow and propagate. You can get a new plants just by putting a leaf in the ground. Or cut the top of your already growing plant. I take off a few of the bottom leaves in the steam and stick the stem in the grown it will take root in no time. To get it bushing cut your already growing plant it will divide at the top and branch off. This plant is so easy and grows so well in low tech tanks it will make you look like a plant growing pro. I love that color it is a bright beautiful green. A little bit of this plant goes a long way quickly. Fish love this plant it makes for great shelter. I can't say enought about this plant it is great.
