“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.

Arrived in excellent condition and easy to plant, growing nicely in the tank. Although the plant is small it will grow and a big plus you can split the plant into 6 pieces or less so your actually getting more than one plant for the price of one.

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

Ask a question about this product
how long can I keep this in the tub as I can only set up my tank next week?

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


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

Thanks, I think its my corys uprooting them
