Water Wisteria AKA The HARDIEST Hygrophila (Hygrophila difformis)
Water Wisteria is simply an AWESOME beginner plant. Water Wisteria (or by it's scientific name- Hygrophila difformis) can take anything you can throw at it.
*IMPORTANT NOTICE**THIS PLANT WAS GROWN ABOVE WATER- IT DOES NOT LOOK LIKE THE PICTURE... We are converting it but as of 3-19 only have had it under water for 3 days..... We have started the process...
We just like to be straight up about our stock- Our Stuff has been grown with Love :)
Wisteria one of those plants that when you get it going it will grow like a weed. Try it out while you are a rookie and see. Water Wisteria does well in a newly planted tank. I like to float it personally as it gets more light and send off some really great long flowing roots. Fish love hiding and breeding in Water Wisteria's roots.
In an order you get 4-6 nice bushy stems of it..often with great roots already going.
The stems are beefy as if they have been growing in down in dirt. This picture doesn't do this great plant justice... This is one of our best selling plants for a reason. We grow them in a 90 gallon aquarium in the greenhouse which gets FULL morning sun. The plants love this and grow like crazy for us...then on to you.
NOTE: While Water Wisteria is one of our best selling aquarium plants, we do stock other forms of Hygrophila as well. (Many of our Hygrophila's are just as hardy)
Check out our HARDY Hygrophila Cordata RED,
Care Scale of 1-10: ( 1- it can grow in your toilet- 10 being nearly impossible)
Wisteria is a 1.5 (only because it might lose a few leaves in shipping)
Can handle super low lighting, grows faster in high light
Where to Plant:
Very large beautiful plants in full flower! Only reason for 4 stars is it wasn't converted to under water growth yet. (Which I expected since I have ordered it before).
Excellent came healthy and hearty.. planted it and now hoping I dont kill it! LOL! I bought some Green Juice and Im sure it will thrive!
They looked so healthy that I planted them in one clump!! As they grow, I'll divide them.
I would never pick this plant myself, but I got it with the best selling combo pack. And I gotta say it's become one of my favorites and I am buying more.
Came fast and arrived healthy. Thanks
