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.

The plants have roots that are similar to crypts. The are the best roots I’ve ever seen on a stem plant
These are huge, healthy stalks, and plenty of them! I was expecting 6" worth of plant, and maybe 4 stalks per bundle. These are double in every way. The redness of the leaves is washed out right now, but I just received them and they've been in a box for four days. I can't wait to see them grow out!
Arrived looking great out of the box! Generous portion
First time buyer was impressed with the size and amount I received.
