Hygrophila lancea 'Araguaia'


Recently reclassified; the former name H. spec. Araguaia is no longer valid. This is a dwarf plant and produces red-brown, narrow leaves under water. It sometimes creeps across the substrate to form carpeting. In its emersed state the plant often produces small, indigo-colored flowers. The plants grow much better with decent light and a supply of CO2. This new Hygrophila appears very flimsy, and is used to best effect in a larger group. In a Nano Cube, a few stems are enough as a splash of color.
