Hygrophila Blue

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.

    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.

    These were quite large, unrooted cuttings, but very healthy looking. Each bunch was 3 stems.

    Great plant!
    Posted by Chris Bachman on 15 Nov 2021

    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.

    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!
