Yet another Hygro from your fishtank friends at Dustin's Fishtanks.
NOTE: This plants are FIRE right now. They have been grown under water and already have roots started. You might see a tiny bit of melted under growth near the base... that is above water grown leaves melting back....
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.
I've tried those before, didn't work out well. I still like the leaves on it and wanted to give it another try. Plants came in healthy, strong and big! My initial idea was to use those attached to wood, but these came in so big, that I might just use them as a regular background plant.
The order came in today and the plants are looking great! I especially enjoyed the Hygrophila Pinnatifida. I've never kept this plant but it's a great busy low plant that feels very hearty. Everything came in healthy and strong. Just like previous orders. Keep up the good work, Dustin and team!
Nice, big beautiful plants. Already with roots. Very pleased
The picture on Dustin's site does not do this plant justice. It came in larger and with more stems than the picture suggested. It was also well packaged.
This is an experiment on my part. I don't know if I have enough light for it to gain the famous reds, or have it branch outward, epiphyte-wise. But the stems I received all were well rooted and solid. No mooshy stems at all. I'm looking forward to seeing if they work out in my two very different tanks. I hope they do, the leaf shape is unique and they look like something dinosaurs might have munched for lunch!
