Water wisteria

(Southeast Asia)

Aquarium UseBackground Hygrophila difformis
Growth RateFast
Difficulty LevelEasy
LightingBright
Temperature20-30oC (68-86oF)
Water ChemistryNot critical
SubstratePlain gravel
PropagationBy cuttings
CommentsA very attractive plant, which will grow quite bushy if pruned regularly, and is an excellent space filler for the back or corners of the tank. The shape of the leaves varies considerably depending on the amount of light available - giving rise to the scientific name (difformis = "differently formed").
