Hygro Araguaia

Hygrophila Araguaia is one of the several varieties available in our store. It originates from South and East Asia and it is found along shallow riverbanks where it can grow both emersed and submersed. It is a beautiful "bushy" plant and should be used as a midground plant.

Care & Maintenance

Under good conditions and provided with good lighting, substrate, and fertilization including iron, Araguaia should grow fast. While not required, CO2 supplementation will increase In order to keep the plant at its best and compact, occasional trimming is recommended. Cuttings can be reused and replanted.

  • Minimum Lighting Required: Medium
  • Temperature Range: 72-82° F
  • Tank Placement: Midground - Background

The appearance of Hygro Araguaia will depend somewhat on the conditions in the aquarium. If grown in a nutrient-rich substrate like Fluval Stratum or Rio Cafe and provided with iron-rich fertilizers and good light, the plant may display deep green to purple-red colors.

    Posted by Steve Minnick on 20 Jul 2021

    Plant arrived very healthy. Left all the plants we ordered in aquarium for 36 hours before setting them in the aquarium. All the plants looked very healthy and their was no wilting or browning after a week in the aquarium. We love this plant. It is a great addition to our aquarium. Can't wait to see the flowers blooming.

    Upon receiving my order I noticed how carefully packaged and well maintained the plants were. When I opened the packaging I couldn't believe how beautiful and healthy my Araguaia were. I would definitely purchase again and again.

    So green! They arrived in bloom! Little flowers everywhere. Strong Stems and healthy leaves. They arrived looking EXACTLY like the photo. Very sturdy plant. They were dipped and added to my 20 gallon.
