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.

Hygrophila Stricta from DFT looked great. I think I ordered 2-3 batches and only took 2-3 yellow leaves out total from all three batches. The core new leaves are a stunning pink color, and the older outer leaves are an attractive live green. I would have liked to see some more roots on the stems since 4-400% of a plants nutrients come through the roots ;) No complaints 5 stars from me.
This was my first order and I was happy to see the gorgeous plants that were so well wrapped and healthy. I found some gorgeous plants including this lovely red stemmed hygro. Thank you!
i love hygros and this one might be my all time favorite. I love the coloring and i hope it does well in my tanks!
Such a nice looking plant! Came in looking great and is a beautiful addition to the tank
