Water Wisteria AKA The HARDIEST Hygrophila (Hygrophila difformis)
Water Wisteria is simply an AWESOME beginner plant. Water Wisteria (or by it's scientific name- Hygrophila difformis) can take anything you can throw at it.
*IMPORTANT NOTICE**THIS PLANT WAS GROWN BELOW the water for 3 weeks. if it isn't fully converted IT SURE IS CLOSE. (Don't be fooled by others selling this plant that will show up above water grown)
We just like to be straight up about our stock- Our Stuff has been grown with Love :) ITS HUGE!!!!! (5-22) (bigger than pen photo)
Wisteria one of those plants that when you get it going it will grow like a weed. Try it out while you are a rookie and see. Water Wisteria does well in a newly planted tank. I like to float it personally as it gets more light and send off some really great long flowing roots. Fish love hiding and breeding in Water Wisteria's roots.
In an order you get 4-6 nice bushy stems of it..often with great roots already going.
The stems are beefy as if they have been growing in down in dirt. This picture doesn't do this great plant justice... This is one of our best selling plants for a reason. We grow them in a 90 gallon aquarium in the greenhouse which gets FULL morning sun. The plants love this and grow like crazy for us...then on to you.
NOTE: While Water Wisteria is one of our best selling aquarium plants, we do stock other forms of Hygrophila as well. (Many of our Hygrophila's are just as hardy)
Check out our HARDY Hygrophila Cordata RED,
Care Scale of 1-10: ( 1- it can grow in your toilet- 10 being nearly impossible)
Wisteria is a 1.5 (only because it might lose a few leaves in shipping)
Can handle super low lighting, grows faster in high light
Where to Plant:
The water wisteria I recieved was great, already turned underwater form. I have been buying plants from Dustin now for 4 months. All my plants have been big with roots and all are still alive and growing well. I use led lights and some of Dustins ferts, but not much and the plants are all beautiful without co2. my tanks are 31 inches deep and the cherry leaf hygrow is at the top. All my red plants are still very red. you will not be disapointed. This is the very best place for big healthy plants. none of my plants have ever melted and none have ever died. Also I keep african peacocks in one tank and they didn't eat any plants in their tank,ludwiga,hygrow,camboba,rotala,alternanthera reineckii,anacharis,crypts,val, anubias, and more
Wow, received wisteria today and the plants were huge. I cannot believe how big they did are. I have ordered plants before from the other guy and the is no comparison and they are so green n healthy.
When a shipment of wisteria arrived in less-than-great condition, DFT replaced it free with my next order. The new plants were in MUCH better shape and are now happily ensconced in their new home. Thanks, DFT team!
This is truly a very pretty plant and so lush! Unlike the one I had baught from a store this one is very pretty and can’t wait to see how big it gets!
This is a fantastic looking plant
