Although it has been known to science for a quite long time, Hygrophila pinnatifida is quite rare and unknown plant in aquascaping. This plant comes from India and it is characterized by its brown/green patched leaves with interesting burgundy colour on underside. In order to maintain compact growth, intense light and regular removing of the shoot tips are required. Hygrophila pinnatifida develops many side shoots that can be easily attached to rocks or driftwood. Its full beauty and uniqueness best stand out when is planted in small groups in front of calm and plain background.
