Hygrophila Compacta


Hello all,

I've been scouring the net for a while for this plant but I can't seem to find any one or store that carries these. I live in Hawaii so that makes it a bit more difficult to get anything over here. If anyone has these and can sell me a few plants I would be grateful.


Thanks.

Definitely sold by Petco. They sell the emersed form...but it easily converts to the submersed form in the tank.

I have some growing.....not sure if that really helps though.

Idk if its just me, but I feel like this plant is getting harder and harder to come by in its normal, not thin leafed form

My 75, but mine isn't the compact version and is still adjusting to my tank and all.

The leafs are a nice lime green with a red tinge in the vain. Mine still isn't even 100% but you get the idea.
