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.

Received a good healthy plant that once planted in tank is doing really well. Great value too

by Gillian S.
Wow! This is one happy plant! Growing well, and providing lots of interest for the fishes. They now have lots of lovely hiding places. This was a good choice, but only suitable for deeper tanks, as they are very tall.

by Gillian S.
These lovely little plants are doing fantastically well! They evidently love the temperature in our aquaria. In fact, they've grown so tall already, they're sticking up above the water level. I prefer the botanical name for them, but maybe there's logic in the common name!

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.

Loves to grow. Great coverage for fish. They like swimming through it.
