Hygrophila Chai is an extremely rare aquatic plant that is said to be a mutation of its more commonly known counterpart, Hygrophila Araguaia. Hygrophila Chai is such a rare sight that there is little information available on this aquatic plant regarding its care, characteristics and growth patterns. From the first impression, this aquatic plant features thin leaves that are reddish to pink hues. When grown submerged, Hygrophila Chai may resemble Hygrophila Araguaia with bright aquatic foliage.
