Description

“Araguaia” is a river system in Brazil and it is under this name that the plant has become known. There are many signs, however, that the plant is a Hygrophila lancea from Japan and Hong Kong. The stem becomes 10-20 cm tall and 6-15 cm wide. It has compact, tight-sitting leaves and grows branches easily. Pinching of the stems maintains a bushy look. The plant is reddish brown to purple in colour and is promoted by good growth conditions. The growth rate is average for a Hygrophila.

Growth:   Medium
Height:  -
CO2 demands:   6-14 mg per liter

Good plant

It's growing but very slowly even though it said 30cm in 30days on the packaging.

I have been plagued with snails when buying plants from other suppliers so it is nice to have some that are snail free and very healthy. I will watch the plants grow with great pleasure knowing that they won't be eaten from the bottom up.

Great value for money, though it's a bit of a pain to plant the little stems individually it's well worth it. After a few weeks they are forming a beautiful red carpet taking up about 20 cm in my tank.

Brilliant service. Excellent product

by Sam Smith on 19/12/2013

A very nice looking plant. It really needs to be separated from the clump it comes in to grow well. One tub can be separated out to cover an area of about 10cm x 10cm. The packaging claims 15cm growth in 2 weeks, or thereabouts. Mine is definitely a slow burner, despite the tank being dosed using EI nutrients and liquid carbon daily and the plants getting plenty of light. It's been planted for about 3 weeks now, and is just starting to reach out start to find it's feet.

how long can I keep this in the tub as I can only set up my tank next week?

 
Staff
Put it somewhere cold where it has good light and it's fine for 2-3 weeks

This plant seems to uproot all the time, have i done something wrong or is there another reason

 
Staff

Not really - just add more gravel/substrat around the plant to anchor it down
