Hygrophila pinnatifida


i think im in love with this plant. i've been looking at some nano tank designs from planted tank contests that have utilized this plant, and the many of the judges said along the lines of "this plant will get too big for the scape" or "this plant is too big..." and the entries were probably docked because of their use of this plant.

that being said, (hahaha) i through out conventional line of thought and purchased the plant for my tank anyways. i am not regretting my purchase...i mean seriously...how can you deny this!?



im hoping that 15 wpg will keep this plant in line. hahahaha.

but yeah...seriously...

Yeah ! Here are some-

In this photo, at the left bottom corner, thats a foot print of a buffalo haha. Just imagine how much ferts everyday they give to pinnatifida. And they even munch on them.


They look wonderfull when the monsoon starts and they start growing. Bright green unlike their true dark green color-


A friend 'Akshay' took the photos of submerged grown pinnatifida-


Cryp Cordata also grows in the same habitat.
Hope you liked it

even if though they are locally available, i would resist poaching them for my own tanks as they look so beautiful in nature... just stunning...

Beautiful pics of H. pinnatifida! I thought H. pinnatifida is from India. I didn't think C. cordata was distributed to India also?

Yeah C Cordatta is also from India. It grows like a weed there.
To add, several erios, some rotalas, blyxa auberty, java fern, java moss, marcililia hirsuta(pardon the spelling), lagenandra they all grows in nature in India.

I didn't see it listed on Jan's website: http://crypts.home.xs4all.nl/Cryptoc...cor-group.html

Is it an introduced species in India? I haven't seen it listed as being native there.

Yup, there are some beautiful species of Lagenandra in India!

No Its not an introduced specie. C Cordata is there since always. Actually the place where it grows is the native of one of my friends. South western area of India. That's called "Konkan Area". 'Western Ghats' mountain range. The place/village I'm talking about is "Guhagar". Lemme dig up some photos for you.

Oh I'm very sorry. I was mixing "Cordata" with "Cognata". My bad. C Cognata is found in India-
