Hygrophila Pinnatifida

Hygrophila Pinnatifida originates from India. It produces fine, fern-like leaves that are predominantly green in color with the underside displaying dark green to burgundy contrasting coloration. The unusual shape of the leaves, their contrasting coloration, and the plant's ability to grow on rocks and driftwood make the plant highly desirable especially in the aquascaping world. Hygrophila Pinnatifida does well under a wide range of aquarium conditions.

Care & Maintenance

Hygrophila Pinnatifida can be planted in soil or attached to driftwood or rocks. Regularly trimming the top stems with sharp scissors will make the plant grow more compact or bushy. The plant looks most attractive when planted in small groups. 

  • Minimum Lighting Required: Moderate
  • Temperature Range: 60-82°F
  • Tank Placement: Midground, Background

While the plant does not require any special care, good lighting will allow the plant to display its best colors and keep a compact shape.

    The stems plants need to have roots on there. Because sometimes we need to attach to the driftwood or rock.

    This plant shipped fast and gives great texture. Can't wait for it grow a bit, so I can try to grow some trimmings as an epiphyte

    This is a stem plant that came very healthy. I planted them immediately and they are doing well. Haven’t seen too many routes yet but it’s only been a week. Very pleased with my purchase.
