Dwarf Hygrophila is a robust aquatic plant that is perfect for beginners trying to grow stem plants for the first time.  It is popular and widely available due to its beauty and easy care. This plant can thrive in a wide variety of freshwater aquariums as long as its given some lighting. Under high light, the leaves will turn a beautiful red and orange tint and the plant will stay compact. High light conditions are required for continued compact growth.

Like many other stem plants, this plant can grow both emersed and submerged. It is a fast grower and can require frequent trimming when kept under high light with Co2 and the addition of fertilizers. Like most stem plants, propagation can be done simply by cutting along the stem and replanting the cuttings.



  • CO2 injection and quality aquarium soil will yield better growth.
  • Please research appropriately to ensure your plant thrives.
