Description

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.

Very happy with my recent purchase of my order from Aquaessentials, the Hygrophila polysperma arrived in excellent condition.

Not sure what happened this time, but they have lost half of their leaves. Maybe the fishes are eating them? What leaves remain at top and bottom of the stems look very healthy. These were always vigorous plants that provided a lot of screening if the fishes needed some downtime. I will have to wait and see if they regrow.

trim heavy and re-plant. The bottom section is being shaded by the top.

A great addition to the tank, great condition etc...

Another plant to stick with. This one is ideal for deeper tanks, providing shelter for the fishes, and it creates a lovely background to the tank. The larger size means the pots are robust enough not to be knocked over by boisterous behaviour too!
