Hygro Willow is a versatile plant and can be utilized in various different ways in the aquarium. Generally, however, the plant is most suitable for the background areas of the aquarium as it usually grows tall under good conditions. If planted in groups of several plants, Hygro Willow will create the appearance of a lush green aquascape, providing hiding places for fish. Hygro Willow is excellent at absorbing nutrients from the water column, helping to maintain a proper balance of nutrients in the aquarium and preventing algae growth.
