Hygrophila Stricta ( Red Stem UNIQUE Plant)
This Hygrophila prefers a almost any environment. It enjoys moderate lighting and provides a gorgeous reddish tint to it's beautiful elongated leaves. The red stem helps aid this visual effect. I would say it likes its ph around 6.8 to 7.5.
These plants have beautiful white roots and are completely submerged plants. I would rate it a 3 out of 10 in terms of difficulty as it does prefer a moderate light.
The more light you give them, the more RED they will give you.
Unlike most Hygrophila the leaves on this plant are rather soft.

This is one beautiful plant! It has an exotic look, kind of Japanese inspired. Its my new favorite! I have a low tech tank, but I bet the red really comes out with good lighting.
I was worried because the plants were a day late, but when the arrived I was pleased to find them quite healthy (I did buy a 4 buck ice pack to keep it all cool). The biggest surprise was that Dustin DOUBLED my order and sent me TWO bunches of about six stems each. I was thrilled and look forward to planting these usual red stem/green leaf plants. Thanks again, and please try to stock more buce so I don't have to use one of your competitors. Peace.
Packaging was professional and safe. all plants arrived in great shape! thank you! I know where I'll be getting my plants in the future!
This is the third type of hygrophila I have gotten from dustin and all of them do great. Only the stricta, in my 55 and it came in crazy healthy. Looking forward to seeing the growth.
This plant is absolutely gorgeous! Dustin always provides healthy plants with generous portions. I only get plants from him
