DescriptionHygrophila Polysperma is a popular aquarium plants which performs very well in most aquarium environments. Undemanding but grows much quicker with good light and CO2 infusion. Very easy to propagate as any part of the plant will take root and grow, even the leaves. Under high light this plant will grow rapidly and will need regular pruning.
A perfect plant for the midground or background areas of your aquarium where a bushy feature is desired. If not trimmed often, growth can get leggy. By trimming regularly you will encourage the plant to development multiple shoots and as a result, a bushy plant is achieved. Growth can be fast, so be prepared to put in some time maintaining it, including fertilizing, trimming, re-planting and shaping.
To plant, remove the pot and the mineral wool carefully from the roots. Plant the stems at intervals and spread the loose roots into the bottom layer. When trimming, cut at any desired position and replant the cutting. The new plants will develop roots within a week.

Nervous of ordering plants on line and having done a couple of sample orders with online companies to gauge quality, I placed a large order with Aquarium Gardens and crossed fingers. So glad I chose Aquarium Gardens. The plants arrived carefully packaged, no damage even to the most delicate foliage, and I was incredibly impressed with the quality of every single plant. Not a single one disappointed. Thank you from me and my fish. Gillian

I chose to buy from Aquarium Gardens because it had a section dedicated to beginner plants which made it much easier for me to pick out plants as I am new to keeping aquatic plants. The website was really easy to use, plants arrived quickly and are packaged very very well. All look lovely and healthy and had very good quick communication when I had a few questions. Will defintely buy again.
