'Chai' is a striking variegated cultivar of Hygrophila lancea "Araguaia" that occurred at South Island Aquarium in Singapore. It is still rarely available in Europe. Its narrowly linear, curved leaves have a green zone in the middle while the edge is white to pink. Its colour tones resemble Cryptocoryne wendtii 'Flamingo' and 'Pink Panther'. As well as normal "Araguaia", submerged Hygrophila lancea 'Chai' has a rather spreading and ramified growth habit.
We recommend rather strong lighting, CO2 addition and good macro- and micronutrient supply. Hygrophila lancea 'Chai' grows slowly, and occasional trimming of the shoot tips maintains its low, bushy growth. As well as other stem plants, it can be propagated by cuttings.
Hygrophila lancea 'Chai' provides a unique light pink colour accent in the midground to foreground, best as a smaller bushy group. It contrasts strongly with dark plants and decoration materials. This variegated Hygrophila is also interesting for emersed setups such as paludariums and Wabi-Kusa.
Please be aware that the bunch/potted variation of this plant could contain snails and other invertebrates.
