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.

Not a great fan of this one but just a personal view. All the plants from AE are excellent so still give it 5 *

Arrived in three days as I chose normal delivery. In very good condition. Has been in aquarium for a week and is growing well. My only issue is the cost of postage. If you are only buying one or two plants, the cost is almost doubled by adding the postage. But I suppose it can't be helped. Happy to recommend Aquaessentials as a company.
