Hygrophilla angustifolia is a low-maintenance plant with long, narrow leaves that grow from a tall stem. Because of its rapid growth, this plant is ideal for use as a background plant and is excellent for absorbing excess waste and nutrients. This plant, like many other stem plants, can grow both emersed and submerged. It grows quickly and may require frequent trimming if kept in high light with Co2 and fertilisers. Propagation, like most stem plants, is as simple as cutting along the stem and replanting the cuttings.

Hygrophila corymbosa is a low-maintenance starter plant native to Asia. It spreads quickly in the aquarium, producing bright green, long and wide leaves.

It is a fast-growing plant that requires frequent pruning. New shoots will sprout from the stem, giving the plant a bushier appearance. Cuttings can be replanted in the aquarium’s bottom, where new roots form quickly.

An anchor containing a bundle of stems or young plants. Remove the anchor and divide the plant into separate plants. Remove the leaves from the bottom 5 cm (2″) of stem plants. Remove any broken or damaged leaves. Plant the individual plants several inches into the bottom substrate. Soon, roots will form, and the plant will begin to grow.

Hygrophila Angustifolia, also known as the Willow Hygro, is a low-maintenance, eye-catching aquarium plant. It has large stems with narrow leaves that sway like a weeping willow tree in the current. Hygrophila angustifolia grows quickly and removes nitrates from aquarium water, making it an excellent choice for beginning aquarists.

It necessitates a nutrient-rich substrate, with iron-rich fertiliser added on a regular basis. A moderate amount of lighting (at least 2 to 3 watts per gallon of full spectrum (5000-7000K) light) should be provided. CO2 fertilisation is also advised.

The water temperature should be kept between 74°-82°F, with an alkalinity of 3 to 8 dKH and a pH of 6.5-7.5 for Hygrophila Angustifolia to thrive. Plant cuttings that have been removed from a healthy mature plant to propagate. Simply remove any leaves from the stem’s bottom 1″ to 2″ and new root growth will form from the stem’s last node.

Approximately 5″ to 7″ in length.

Cultivation is simple if the plant’s basic requirements are met. Sufficient light and CO2 supply are essential, but under strong lights it requires a lot of nitrate, phosphate, potassium, and trace elements. Because of its rapid growth, it is an excellent indicator plant for a variety of nutrient deficiencies. If there is insufficient potassium, for example, its leaves develop small black spots and later holes; nitrate deficiency causes its older leaves to turn yellow and die; and pale, almost white new leaves indicate a lack of iron.
Hygrophilla angustifolia benefits from a gentle current, which highlights its lovely undulate foliage.

This plant’s enormous growth rates and impressive foliage are induced by high light intensity and an abundant supply of nutrients. Propagation is simple; simply cut and replant lateral shoots or the top shoot as you would with most stem plants. The more the plant is pruned, the bushier its growth will become.
When allowed to grow to and above the water’s surface, the air shoots will emerge. Beautiful blue/violet flowers will form on branching flower stalks outside of the water, as with other C. corymbosa varieties.
Occasionally, newly purchased plants that were grown emersed in the nursery may struggle to adapt to submerged cultivation.

Hygrophilla angustifolia lends itself well to accentuating the background of large aquariums, where it contrasts beautifully with broad- or round-leaved plants. It is also ideal for central, free-standing mound arrangements in aquascape layouts, where its undulate leaves gently sway in the slight current.
