Common Name: Dwarf Hygrophila Corymbosa 'Siamensis'


A very compact cultivar variety of Hygrophila corymbosa, with the leaves set close to the stalk. Forms numerous side shoots, enhancing the compact appearance. The leaves are a dark brownish-green, when the plant leaves the nursery, but after a transitional period in the aquarium they turn pale green and silver-white on the underside.

In strong light, the newest leaves may become reddish brown and in dimmer light, the oldest ones die away after a while. New side shoots often forms to replace the old ones.

    Although this plant will do well in low light and CO2, in order to get the dark redish color you will need medium to high lighting. CO2 injection will also benefit but is not required. Propagation can be done by snipping the runners with aquascaping scissors
