Hygrophila corymbosa 'Stricta'


This variety has larger but narrower leaves than the species H. corymbosa. Here, too, the submersed leaves are light green, but the distance between leaf pairs is larger. Open aquariums give the shoots enough space to grow upwards, where they eventually turn an intense dark green again. Good lighting and CO2 supplementation go a long way towards promoting growth. Large-leafed Hygrophila are best presented in aquariums larger than 100 cm. To show off their best features, plant a group of at least 10-15 stems.
