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 UNDER. It had been in near full sun and might have reddish tips. It’s a tad smaller than the pen photo shown....for now.
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:
I’ll keep ordering plants from Dustin’s. The plants I received today are amazing. Why Is ordering from Dustin’s is better the buying from my LFS? Because every inch of the plant is healthy and green compared to the falling apart plants at the LFS. Kudos to your crew for packing them to arrive safely and the tracking number showed me right when they’d be here (and they were right on time.) Again there were more than I expected. Your plants are the best investment I’ve made for my tank. I’ll be ordering more next month.
So I never realized this plant can have so many forms. I didn't recognize it to the point, I didn't want to plant it just yet to see if it changed form and structure. I love this version of it thought looks deep green super awesome! Have a great one everyone! Dustin my box had a hole in it again ! Maybe the mail ppl are curious on checking out ur plants. Still no harm done the plants are crazy great since my last order I'd say by alot ! Congrats on your hard efforts!
Very excited to try this plan out I’ve seen it so many tanks and it looks great. The Stems They sent are very well rooted. Hopefully this will take off in my tanks.
I just got my plants today and they all looked great. I got some extra pieces as well! Thank you!
it arrived a whole day early and in perfect condition! The newspaper was still extremely wet. The wisteria itself looks good. It's on its way to converting to underwater. It's fairly green and looks pretty healthy. I planted some and floated some.
