Hygrophila Lancea Araguaia sometimes referred to as Hygrophila Araguaya Sharp Leaf features an uncommon appearance in the planted aquarium tank hobby with its submersed leaves being extremely narrow and displaying a rich reddish-brown tone. This aquatic plant also exhibits a creeping growth pattern, slightly tilted leaves and slow branching. Hygrophila Lancea Araguaia is slowly rising in popularity but can still be somewhat difficult to find and is highly coveted recently by planted aquarium enthusiasts of all skill levels. Care includes quality aquarium LED lighting, CO2 injection, and quality aquarium soil. 

Being slightly finicky, Hygrophila Lancea Araguaia's growth can be easily stunted but also has the potential to produce a purple hue when provided with optimal conditions.  Hygrophila Lancea Araguaia can be grown both submerged and emerged in a terrarium, paludarium, vivarium-like setups. It should be noted that both forms exhibit different appearances.

Overall, Hygrophila Araguaia grows similar to an aquatic stem plant and will grow lower when provided with quality aquarium lighting. If a dense bush-like tuft is a goal, Hygrophila Lancea Araguaia is a perfect mid ground aquatic plant choice in planted aquarium tanks. Propagating this aquatic plant is simple and can be done by trimming and replanting healthy stems into quality aquarium substrate.
