Hygrophila pinnatifidaÂ from India grows unique lobed leaves with olive green, leathery brown to brownish-red upper side with a light yellow pattern in the aquarium. The underside is wine red. The plant grows horizontal lateral shoots whose roots will cling to rocks or driftwood. It has only been cultivated in aquaria since 2008, today it is a very popular plant with manifold uses in aqua scaping. When the top shoots are trimmed regularly, the plant maintains its compact growth habit. If the shoot tops aren't cut off, the stems grow high and upright with long leaves. When planted in smaller groups in front of a calm background, the plant's growth habit and colorÂ are a nice eye-catcher.
