Hygrophila polysperma is one the easiest plants to grow, suited for beginners and new set ups as it just keeps growing whilst absorbing excess nutrients. Originating from India, the polysperma grow very fast and often need trimming. Under good lighting the shoot will turn a reddish-brown.

When planting this plant in the substrate try using 2 or 3 rocks to surround the stem, this will highlight the plant and help bring out the colour.

Plants arrived in excellent condition as always, since finding aqua essentials I’ve never brought plants from anywhere else.

When you say this plant is fast growing you’re not kidding!!!! It hit the surface in about a week and I’ve trimmed it back hard and replanted. Already shouting back up !!! So green too

This is the only plant that ive had any success with. Ive had my aquarium for about 8 years & had many different types of plants all without success & end up binning them. I planted this one in a basket, added a fertiliser tablet and surrounded it with gravel. Its thriving Brilliantly.
