About Hуgrорhіlа Cоrуmbоѕа
Because of its height, Hygrophila corymbosa is best used as a background plant. In medium tanks, it can be used successfully as a specimen plant. In the wild, it usually grows emersed, but it can easily adapt to being submerged.
Propagating the plant is easy. Take a cutting from the mother plant, remove the bottom leaves, and place it in the substrate. Be careful not to damage the stem. For quicker root growth, add additional nutrients to the water.
