Product Description

Hygrophila 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.

  • Vibrant plants

    First purchase this week and I was so pleased. The plants were so healthy and vibrant. It's got me thinking about replanting my other tank with more plants! Will definately be buying from them again

  • Quick service, fantastic plants

    I have ordered from Aquarium Gardens for the first time after seeing them on social media. Well what can I say except WOW, the plants were a really good price, they arrived on time actually quicker than I expected! They arrived in absolutely fantastic condition as if I had picked them out myself, well packaged. The plants themselves were bigger than what I expected to get so definitely value for money and the root systems were well established, can't wait to see them get bigger in my aquariums. Will definitely buy from this company again.
