Nomaphila siamensis parvifolia also known as Hygrophila compacta Mini is a small and compact aquarium plant that suits the foreground location. Deep green coloured leaves are packed in tight - for this reason brighter light is required.

As this aquarium plant grows, the lower leaves drop off, particularly if light levels are not perfect. But when the light is good, you'll even see red tones which makes it look quite uique.

Most suitable for the foreground area.

Found this plant on the website, did some research on it and found out in its emersed form it grows purple flowers. Think a row of these in a paludarium or riparium would look good.

You're trying to but at a time when we are usier than ever. Stock arrives every thursday afternoon and Friday so stock is then replenished. But with millions more people at home due to Covid, demand for plants has increased 10 fold. You are trying to buy Thursday morning and as a result we haven't had a delivery for nearly 7 days (and we only have so much space in the warehouse).

We can only buy plants that are available from the growers so if they are out of stock then nothing we can do about it. I suggest you look back later today and Friday then make your buying decision then. You can also call 01363 774 787 to find out lead times on plants.
