  • Hygrophila Pinnatifida plant disccussion

    I've had Hygrophila Pinnatifida growing emerse before and it grew well, but the instant I placed it in my tank it died. I tried several times putting my emerse growth clippings into my tank with no luck. I know someone who is willing to send me some submerse growth clippings and I just don't want it to die.

    Any suggestions on care for this plant?

    Got some clarification on this plant....such an amazing plant. If you get clippings from a plant that is already submerse then you don't have a problem with the acclimation. If you get clipping from an emerse plant then you will need to acclimate....have them float in your tank until it sends out roots.

    Another tidbit....it is a stem plant but can be treated like a rhizome plant. You can tie on to driftwood, rocks, etc....interesting huh. I have some clippings and doing both.

      That is pretty interesting and a very pretty plant. I like the leaf slender leaf structure and of course coloring. If you end up with extra trimmings at some point let me know!

        Very good to know NorthStar I am planning on getting some for my two tanks just got to wait until payday the ones ill be getting are coming from tanks so I think they should be ok but if they haven't got roots I will float them until they grow some

          Mine didn't have roots but were grown in the water already. They were clippings from the top of the plant so I just ended up tying some to a driftwood and I put one stem in the substrate.

          Hopefully mine will grow wild so I can offer clippings to everyone. It is such a pretty plant.

            I had one but managed to kill it. I think I might try it again and see if I can get it to thrive next time. It's such a lovely plant.

                  The picture doesn't do it justice...I can't wait until it takes off in my tank. I think this is my new favorite plant.

                    That is a nice looking plant. It is neat to be able to see the different colors it shows for others compared to what mine looks like . Gotta love the versatility of it in a scape.

                        Mine doesn't look as nice, but this is a picture of it before I trimmed down most of the tall stuff to encourage the creeping growth.

                              Thanks, I can vouch for the great quality of the hygro from P_volitan, that is who I got mine from as a freebie.
