Hygrophila Blue is an attractive stem aquarium plant that produces sturdy stems with triangular green leaves which may develop a slight blue tint.
Care & Maintenance for Hygrophila Blue
Hygrophila Blue, like most Hygrophila species, is highly adaptable and will do well in most aquariums. Under good conditions, Hygrophila Blue will grow fast and may need regular pruning to keep it tidy. Cuttings can be replanted in the substrate.
- Minimum Lighting Required: Moderate
- Temperature Range: 70-82°F
- Tank Placement: Background
Hygrophila Blue is an ideal plant for the edges, corners, and back areas of the aquarium. It does not require CO2 supplementation, but it will benefit from it, growing bigger and faster. Good lighting, iron fertilization, and rich substrate will ensure the plant will thrive in the aquarium. The plant looks best when planted in well-spaced groups.
Hygrophila Blue is also available potted. We offer other varieties of Hygrophila species, including Hygro Araguaia, Hygrophila Pinnatifida, Wisteria (Hygrophila Difformis), and Hygrophila Willow.

Plants arrived healthy and very nice looking. A few weeks later and they've got roots and are already growing and doing very well in my tank. Very pleased.
Beautiful hardy plants able to easily adapt to any healthy and cycled ecosystem. Hands down the best aquatic live plants ever encountered thus far. Awesome product matched with outstanding free delivery.
They delivered on time and in good condition
These plants were delivered--as was all of my plant order--healthy and vibrant. The Hygro Blue is beautiful and large. It will be a great addition to the tank.
The plants arrived healthy and well packaged. I would recommend them to others
Big, healthy stems
These were quite large, unrooted cuttings, but very healthy looking. Each bunch was 3 stems.
I had never bought these before so didn't know what to expect. They came to me healthy and robust, which was a nice change from other stores. And, they are nice and large and spread out to really add some character to the tank. In a 55 gal I have to always look for larger plants and these fit the bill nicely. No complaints, very happy.
Hygro Blue (Hygrophila Salcifolia)
Beautiful mid ground plant. Really fills up a space. Very healthy and green!
Plant arrived green and very healthy. It was planted after soaking in water for 24 hrs. Looks great in the tank
Arrived healthy. The stems I received had no roots but roots have grown within a week since planting and they are growing new leaves already as well. Happy with purchase!
big healthy bushy with roots
I would buy 4 bunches for a 55 gallon
Great and healthy
Beautiful 2nd order for these.
