hygrophila corymbosa


Hey I got a nice stalk of this red/pinkish orange hygro corymbosa that is getting way to big for my 8 gal and is has too many nice small shoots to cut. Anyone have anything cool they would want to trade that's interesting? Downtown Manhattan

Is this species as weed-proned as sunset hygro?

Just as weedy but grows much larger. It's also a potassium hog. It does turn a nice orange when it's near the light though.

These are also great plants for low tech setups.

Its been grown 3 inches from 2 HOt5s with high CO2 and weekly fertz (ADA). Also I got it submersed grown from Fishtown USA in Ramsey,NJ. Best place to get plants in NY NJ area hands down Btw, im a little biased since ive worked there for the past 4 years off and on and heavily on the live plant section. Def recomend checkking this place out if your ever in bergen county.
