    Description

    Hygrophila pinnatifida 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 aquascaping. 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 colour are a nice eye-catcher.

    Hygrophila pinnatifida is an uncommon hygro endemic to India. There it grows on rivulets in the western coastal area on the foot of the Western Ghats (Maharashtra, Goa, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu), and in literature, findings of this plant are also documented for the north-Indian state Uttar Pradesh.
    H. pinnatifida has been known to science for over 150 years, however, it has only been cultivated as aquarium plant since early 2008. Up to now (2010) it is still relatively rare in the hobby, however, some large aquatic plant nurseries have already taken it into their product range as novelty.

    This plant differs from the Hygrophila species hitherto kept in aquaria in many respects. Its leaves of the emersed as well as the submersed form are pinnatilobed to pinnatisect and are thus highly decorative. (read more)
