Aquatic Plants
Usually ships in 1-2 business days from our fulfillment center

Hygrophila Compact is a lovely midground aquatic plant choice! Showcasing very compact, low growth, Hygrophila Compact is derived from the original species Hygrophila Corymbosa with leaves that sit close to its stem. Foliage is large and bold with varying coloration depending on the aquarium tank it is grown and kept in. Color tones can vary from bold brownish reds and pinks to shades of green. As mentioned, Hygrophila Compact makes a wonderful choice as a midground aquatic plant choice due to its interesting growth habits. This aquarium plant will readily form dense, compact bushes and will fill out sparse areas in a planted aquarium tank with ease. This aquarium plant requires medium levels of quality aquarium LED lighting and the addition of CO2 injection aids in promoting quicker more robust growth.

Weak lighting can result in Hygrophila Compact growing upwards towards the light. This can be combated by providing higher light settings and ensuring it is trimmed to encourage low-growing habits. Hygrohpila Compact is quite undemanding but can be susceptible to nutrient deficiencies.
