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.

Arrived in quickly and in excellent condition. Was extremely well packaged. Excellent growth since going in the tank. Would definitely buy from Aqua Essentials in the future and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to others.

This is a lovely plant, now growing rapidly with the root tabs that I bought with it. It needs trimming as it gets rather lanky!
