Hygrophila difformis from Asia is beautiful and undemanding - also known as Water wisteria.

Stems become 20-30 cm tall and 6-12 cm wide. A plant for beginners which can help create a balance in the aquarium from the start. Its rapid growth helps prevent algae because the plant absorbs a great number of nutrients from the water especially ammonia which is algae's number 1 food source. The shortage of micronutrients leads to pale leaves, which may be an indication that the aquarium needs more fertiliser such as Neutro T.

In large aquariums its lobed leaves can create a distinctive group so looks best in groups.

This plant has been grown underwater and as a result, has little if any root development and may contain snails or other invertebrates.

Bunch arrived very pale and the stems were quite crooked and bent. I planted anyway but apart from some root growth on upper leaves it hasn't coloured up or started growing any new leaves in nearly 3 weeks. Maybe it's a dead spot for co2 or high light in my tank but it is the only plant not thriving currently. Service speed and other plants from AE have been fantastic.
