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.

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
The plant was larger than I thought it would be, ~ 6" tall! A lot of the leaves were dead when it got here but the plant looked great overall. It has been in my tank for 3 days and there is tons of new growth on it already! The red tone on the underside of the leaves and stem is beautiful. My goldfish have hardly messed with it and love meandering through this and the new Moneywort. I would definitely buy it again!
