Hygrophila Corymbosa Compacta 

Hygrophila Compacta originates from India. It is a very popular and well-known aquarium plant. It produces rigid stems and vibrantly green and lush leaves. The plant has a "bushy" appearance and contrasts well against other bunched plants.

Care & Maintenance

Hygrophila Compacta is highly adaptable and tolerant of a wide range of aquarium conditions. It is a relatively fast grower. It is an ideal plant for any aquarium because it is not fussy about substrates or water quality.

  • Minimum Lighting Required: Moderate
  • Temperature Range: 64°-86°F
  • Tank Placement: Foreground-Midground

The plant can be planted in well-spaced groups and looks great around the edges and corners of the aquarium. If the leaves begin to yellow, iron fertilizer should be added. Hygrophila can be kept in cooler waters.

    Very Impressed
    Posted by Alexz Gimon on 5 Aug 2023

    Each plant was much bigger than I expected and in awesome condition. No hitchhikers were found and the leaves are a beautiful dark green. By far the best plants I got in my order.

    Favorite plant yet
    Posted by Megan on 3 Mar 2022

    I absolutely love this plant. It came with roots about 2in long which really helps since my peacocks love to rearrange the tank to their needs. It also makes the tank appear to have mini trees. I will definitely be ordering more.

    Not as much as I expected
    Posted by Alyssa Magiera on 4 Dec 2021

    Each plant was a single stem, about 3 inches long--a little disappointing--but both have fantastic roots on them, so they'll probably take off growing in no time.

    Learned about this plant from a YouTuber that I follow, so glad I made the choice to add this to my aquarium, as well!

    These are great at the front of the aquarium. They've acclimated well and are growing.

    Arrived healthy and took to the tank right away, lots of new growth from the bottom and they look great. Low-tech tank.
