HYGROPHILA POLYSPERMA 'SUNSET'
|Height:||up to 30 cm|
|Water hardness:||soft to hard|
|Propagation:||head cuttings, side shoots|
´Sunset´ is a beautiful cultivar for the midground to background. In its emersed state the leaves are very noticeable with whitish-yellow veins; below the surface the plant blooms in hues from light pink to a deep reddish-pink. As with the regular H. polysperma, this variety is easy to care for and undemanding. Most other colored stem plants are more difficult. A good iron fertiliser will help the shoots develop their intense coloring. The leaves of Hygrophila polysperma are 4 cm wide smaller than the species and therefore suitable for Nano Cubes.
