    Hey all, I am new to this forum and I am from the DFW area. I have been the aquarium hobby for about 5 years now and started a planted tank about 2 years ago now. I have always had some issues with my plants. For some reason they are merely coasting along. They are not thriving like alot of...

    Hygrophila Salicifolia..what Is The Truth?

    Is it blue? Does it get willow like leaves to fit the rest of the common name" Willow leafed blue Hygro" ? I have yet to see a photo of one with as much as a obvious blue tint. Maybe positive thinking on one photo I saw...all others were of strongly green plants. I need faster,hardier,larger...

    Hygrophila 'chai' The Pink-purple Rarity..who's Grown It?

Not an easy grow I read and plants of tissue culture size are going for $100. Like that would stop a pro..who MUST HAVE IT!..ha. I know how...

    Propagating Hygrophila Pinnatifida

    How do you propagate this plant? Can the new cuttings be planted in the substrate? Or should all cuttings be attached to wood or rocks? Should the bottom leaves be trimmed the new cuttings?

    I'd like to try a new set up with lava rocks and sand. Behind the lava rocks I'll be using some type of aqua soil for the back plants. I want to try sand in the front of the tank. I'd like to plant some crypts and hygrophila araguaia in the sand but I don't know if they will do well in sand...

    Growing Hygrophila Pinnatifida In Between And Above Crypts?

    I have a few crypts in a corner of a tank. The crypts are planted in between rocks that are pilled up. I want to get a more vertical look in the corner. So my question is, if I plant a couple stems of the Pinnatifida in between the Crypts how would the Crypts do once the Pinnatifida gets taller...

    Hygrophila Corymbosa
