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

Ordered and shipped in one day! Plants come packed perfectly, they were much larger than I thought they’d be, and the portions were very large. Customer service is top notch here, too! The only place I’ll order plants from now on! Thanks guys!

Hygrophila Cordata Red

This is an awesome plant for my backround and to fill in space for mid level water activity. It has narrow thin leaves that are tan-ish/red-ish color that changes on the proper lighting. I would buy this plant again.


Love this so much I had to order more with my IWANTMORE discount code. Thanks Dustin & team.
