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. IT IS FULLY CONVERTED. (Don't be fooled by others selling this plant that will show up above water grown)
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)

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:
Very nice healthy plants considering the high temps encountered during cross country shipping.
Plant arrived in good condition despite shipping delays that I've become accustomed to during this COVID thing.
I have ordered this plant from numerous buyers online, and each time I would receive the plant either severely melted or outright dead. I decided to give Dustin a try and I only regret that I hadn't done it earlier. The plant arrived fast and in great condition with no noticeable damage. The plant got established in the tank quickly and is already growing. Dustin will be the only person who I will be ordering plants from for now on.
I bought Water Wisteria from another company but Dustin's is just so healthy and green. Full and beautiful.
Ordered some more plants for both my tanks. Everything arrived looking beautiful and healthy as usual. It was crazy to plant a new wisteria next to one that’s been growing for about 3 weeks. SO much growth. The pictures of my 90 gallon are about 2 weeks apart with almost all Dustins plants. I won’t buy anywhere else. Always great quality and generous quantity.
