Originating from India the Hygrophila Pinnatifida is a relatively newcomer to the planted aquarium market making it a rather exciting and unusual addition to any tank. Given the right environment this plant can grow up to 60 cm in height.

We recommend that you place in the back ground of your aquarium for maximum effect. Ideally attach it to wood or rock.

A handsome plant at an excellent price!

Love this plant, had it a week and it’s slready turning brown Unusual leaf type which I find attractive can also be tied onto wood and rocks but I got mine directly into the substrate!

How tall does it grow?

About 40cm

Hi I am new to aqua plants - have used plastic before. I only have a sand substrate in my tank is this suitable for growing plants. What plants can I grow, my ph is about 7.5. I do not have any co2 (at the moment) I have 2 led strip lights. Suggestions welcome. Helen Skinner


Sand is OK but there are lots better - see our substrates section for ideas. You can probably grow 50% of the plants but you will have to do your research first as there are over 150 species in stock.

What is the best way to attach this plant to wood or rock as it is a stem plant with no rhizome?As such i don't understand how it can flourish attached to wood or hardscape.I was thinking along the lines of using superglue or Flourish plant glue to attach it.I have planted it before in substrate and seen new growth from it but would like to try it attached to wood as a mix alongside the likes of Anubias and Microsorum and Moss.


flourish glue is the best way - it looks best grown on wood

Thanks for the reply.I like how you have a good description of the plant and it's needs.It is too easy to just purchase a plant and not take notice of it's light needs and CO2 needs.A really beautiful plant this one and it's leaf will turn more Crimson with TLC.

My silver dollar seem to eat all plants would this survive?


It’s quite tough so worth trying
