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 the water for 3 weeks. if it isn't fully converted IT SURE IS CLOSE. (Don't be fooled by others selling this plant that will show up above water grown)
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)

Where to Plant:
My order arrived looking gorgeous as ever! It's hard to believe they were even shipped through the mail, the plants are so healthy it's as if I picked them myself!
I ordered a beginner pack and wisteria. Everything was packaged very nice and the plants were all very beautiful! They are all doing great! I couldn't be happier! I will definitely be ordering from Dustin again!
I thought the plant was a little weak. Didn’t look that healthy.
