The Hygrophila, Temple Narrow Leaf with its thick stems and big, shiny green leaves that can reach a length of 5" underwater, the Hygrophila corymbosa plant makes a completely unique addition to a freshwater planted aquarium. This plant is amphibious, and if grown out of the water, the leaves emerge as round and really dark in colour.
Except for very small aquariums and those with nearly no illumination, there may be no chances in which H. corymbosa Siamensis cannot find a good planted tank home. Lighting and nutrient demands are slight, as are those regarding vitamins.
Like many vegetation if stored underneath sturdy light the leaves will take on a purple or pinkish hue.
Observe: whilst planting this plant it's advisable to plant each stem separate so light can get to the bottom of each stem.
