Hygrophila corymbosa 'Compact'


This dwarf format probably came about via mutation, and is not typical for the Hygrophila genus. The stems are heavily compressed and the leaves are closely packed. Emersed cultivated plants have deep green leaves, whereas aquarium plants have bright green leaves. They grow slowly, which makes them much easier to care for than other Hygrophila varieties. It is a good candidate as a foreground plant. Atypical leaves make this a nice change from the usual foreground plants.
