Hygrophila pinnatifida (bunch)
Hygrophila pinnatifida is a beautiful and interesting stem plant from India. Its leaves contain brown/green tone on the top side with a distinctive burgundy red underneath. Bottom stems could produce runners that help to develop new plants quickly and the tops may be trimmed to promote more compact growth. Red coloring becomes more intense under strong light and elevated CO2. Growth is moderate to fast once they adapt to the tank environment and may require often trimming.
It is the combination of the leaf shape and color that gives this stem plant such a distinctive and unique look and has Aquascapers so excited. Some people have described the leaves as looking fern-like.
- Lighting requirement: Medium to high light.
- Growth rate: Fast
- Difficulty: Easy
