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 below water for about two weeks. It is not fully converted but well on its way.
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:
Nice big lots of stems
& I planted it but wish I'd floated it on top for my skirted Tetra - so am ordering again to put in my other tank - if you get this in time send mine w/elongated roots if you have any
My betta approves! It came in nicely and i even got enough for both tanks! Can't wait to see it grow!
I am very happy with plants. The plants were shipped very quickly. I was worried about the condition they would arrive in because shipping was slow due to the holidays. They were fine though. Nice and green and generous proportions. Thank you I will order again.
Have a problem with this one. What I got was not this plant. Whatever it is I like it and am using it in my tank. But I still need the Westeria. Will order again later.
