HYGROPHILA LANCEA 'ARAGUAIA'
|Light demand:||high - medium|
|Height:||up to 30 cm|
|Water hardness:||very soft to hard|
|Propagation:||head cuttings, side shoots|
Recently reclassified; the former name H. spec. Araguaia is no longer valid. This is a dwarf plant and produces red-brown, narrow leaves under water. It sometimes creeps across the substrate to form carpeting. In its emersed state the plant often produces small, indigo-colored flowers. The plants grow much better with decent light and a supply of CO2. This new Hygrophila appears very flimsy, and is used to best effect in a larger group. In a Nano Cube, a few stems are enough as a splash of color.
