A cultivar of Hygrophila Corymbosa with an extremely compact growth habit. Emerged leaves are coppery brown to dark green. Submerged revert back to green.
Also known as H. corymbosa ‘Mini’ and Nomaphila siamensis ‘Parvifolia’. This plant is easily maintained in a height of 6 to 10 cm and has very short internodes. If it gets taller, it should be trimmed. The cuttings can be used for propagation. The small bushes of the Compact Hygrophila are suitable for the foreground as well as for nano tanks. This plant has only a medium lighting demand, therefore it grows also in high tanks. It is quite undemanding, but a little susceptible to iron deficiency.
- Do not make drastic changes to the aquarium. Unstable parameters will result in melt and rotting of the aquarium plant.
- If received in a pot, please remove all rock wool from the roots. Where possible we try and ship without pots or rockwool. Due to them being non-biodegradable we prefer to propagate in an environmentally conscious way.
- CO2 will generally yield better growth rates.
