Hygrophila cordata 'Red' ( Gangster Red Aquarium Plant for Sale)
Hygrophila cordata REDSometimes 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.

Finally! This is a very pretty contrast to all the green in my tank. It was redder when it first arrived, and will darken up when I fertilize it again, but it is a pretty happy pink in there as is.
Adds beautiful color to my tank, it breaks up the green from the other plants.
The plant arrived in great condition. It is a beautiful addition to my tank. Dustin sends me quality plants always.
got this on the father's day sale. came in nice and healthy really nice stems dis melt back a but but not too bad i can see some new growth hoping it takes off like my other plants .
I bought this plant in May without having thought about where I was going to put it, so it had to spend the night with my fancy goldfish while I made room in it’s permanent tank. During its short time with the goldfish they pounded on it like fat kids on pancakes. After moving it,it bounced back very quickly and is now one of the best looking plants that I have.
