Hygrophila Difformis

Hygrophila Difformis or Water Wisteria by its popular name is a fast-growing stem plant that is extremely easy to care for and suitable for beginners. It can grow very tall but with frequent pruning, the plant can stay compact and low growing. In large aquariums its lobed leaves can create a distinctive group.

This is a plant that will help create balance in the aquarium from the start. Its rapid growth helps prevent algae because the plant absorbs a great number of nutrients from the water. The shortage of micronutrients leads to pale leaves, which may be an indication that the aquarium needs fertiliser.

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.
