Hygrophila cordata RED

Sometimes I order plants just because they sound cool and I have no idea what they are. I rolled the dice with this one and it came up yahtzee! Generally speaking, most hygraphila are super easy plants to keep. One of our best selling plants is Hygrophila difformis aka water wisteria.


When I saw the words "Hygrophila" I figured it would be an easy one to grow. I was right. The RED on this Hygrophila cordata is a real winner for me. This plant was originally grown above water (Like most aquarium plants) however, we were able to watch it quickly adapt to life entirely under water in just a few days.

This plant has a hardy stem to it and has some really great red colors to it. I would use this plant as a back ground plant as a nice contrast along side some tall and skinny grassy plants.

On a scale of 1 to 10. One being duckweed or java moss. 10 being some insane plant that needs full CO2, crazing lighting and fertilizers, I give this plant a 4.5 The only reason it isn't a 3 is because you might find it looks a bit better with some fertilizers for its redish colors.

The more light and fertilizers you give it, the more red love it will show!

GRAB SOME- This Hygrophila Cordata Red DOES NOT LAST

Care Scale of 1-10: ( 1- it can grow in your toilet- 10 being nearly impossible)

Hygrophila Cordata Red is a 1.5.  It is a fast grower but will look the best and live up to its name of "RED" when you provide better lighting to it.


Can handle low light but will grow faster and look better in high light.

Hygrophila Cordata Red

This is an outstanding plant! It arrived in beautiful full condition. My goldfish found the presentation to be irresistibly appealing, and they give this plant a FIVE STAR review. Not only was it attractive, it was highly palatable, tasty, and probably very nutritious! They grazed off this plant for two days until only stems were left behind like the bones from an order of babyback ribs. They were very excited about it and want to know what there is for dessert. I think I will order more annubias!

Great plants by far

All plants came in healthy no leaf rot what’s so ever


Love this plant! It has such unique narrow shape to it's leaves and provides a cool contrast against plants like swords! I bought (2) portions and each portion was way more than I expected and super healthy!! Thank you!!
