Hygrophila Corymbosa Stricta
Hygrophila Corymbosa Stricta is a robust undemanding aquatic plant that is perfect for beginners trying to grow stem plants for the first time. It is a fast growing plant with bright green, long and wide leaves that must be pruned frequently.
This plant can thrive in a wide variety of freshwater aquariums as long as its given some lighting. Under high light, the leaves will turn a beautiful red and orange tint and the plant will stay compact. High light conditions are required for continued compact growth. New shoots will spread from the stem and make the plant look bushier.
Propagation can be achieved by taking cuttings from the main stem of the plant that are replanted into the substrate. Be sure to remove the leaves from the last node on the bottom of the stem to insure proper root growth.
