Yet another Hygro from your fishtank friends at Dustin's Fishtanks.
NOTE: The photos labeled "AS OF 8/24/22" are the current plant that we are selling.
Suggested to us by our friend, Erick Sullivan up in New Hampshire, shoutout! We have also been known for our Hygrophilas. From the mega hardy "Alpha" Water Wisteria (Hygro Difformis, Up the to "Gangster Hygro Cordata Red" and down to the short and stunning Hygro Compact.
Well here comes another one. Hygrophila Pinnatifida. Yep and this one is another WOW Hygro.
What we have grown to love about Hygros is there ability to show you "love" with more orange and reds with the more light and fertilizers you give them.
Hygro Pinnatifida is no exception to this. Under lower light conditions it will stay more green, but under higher light it will give you RED.
This plant is not as easy to keep as other species of hygro. (Generally speaking the thinner and narrower varieties aren't as rugged as the thicker fatter ones.)
This plants is more of a Midground plant and will make a nice contrast to a grassy foreground section.
We are growing this plant in high light to convert it quickly. The tips of the stems haven't rooted yet, but they are close.... This is a sweet plant.
You'll get three stems in a bundle. DISCOUNTED BECAUSE THEY AREN'T FULLY CONVERTED YET.... but will be soon.
The Hygrophila Pinnatifida came in strong and rooted. I've ordered this plant from other vendors that were only 2" tall, got lost in my 10 gallon tank, and eventually melted away, but not Dustin's! I got 3 x 6" stems that we're thick and hearty, already converted, and red! I'm excited to see how they do long term.
Ordered both the Hygrophila as well as the Ammania, both came in with most leaves intact, good roots and lots of color. There may have been a few trumpet snail hitchhikers on these as well but there’s always a chance I had them in my tank before ordering and just noticed them now. Always clean and check your plants! Looking forward to ordering again, thanks D!
I’ve ordered several plants through Dustin over the course of two years. There’s been a couple mishaps but he and his team are great at fixing the problems.
I’m hoping this plant grows beautifully in my tank.
This is a bit of an odd experience for me with getting plants from Dustin. The stems 3+ inch's and are barely covered with any leaf's. I am hoping that it come back,
