Known as Giant Hygrophila, this species grows tall with large broad leaves. If left untrimmed this plant can grow above the water surface which makes it an excellent choice for ripariums and paludariums. It is also relatively easy to grow given that CO2 is not required (but will boost growth). You will receive at least three fresh cut stems that are trimmed and ready to plant. Give them space to grow in!
Our Hygrophila Corymbosa is grown in house!
Photos shown are for illustration purposes only. Plants vary in size and look.
- When we harvest this plant we trim off some of the lower sets of leaves, forming anchor like prongs. Insert one or two sets of these prongs into your substrate to help keep the plant in place. Roots will form from these locations within the substrate.
- Once rooted, cut the stems to encourage a more bushy appearance, or let them grow taller for a different effect.
- Whenever you cut this plant as mentioned above, make sure to replant the cut portions. This will allow you to propagate this species relatively quickly!
- You may notice small bumps on some of the leaves. These are normal on this species.
