[AGA-Member] Re: Hygrophila 'compacta'

I have been growing and distributing this plant for over 5 years. For me, it has always grown slowly and very compact. I have shared cuttings with people who's tanks offer much richer growing conditions (well stocked discus, CO2 enriched). We have noticed that the leaf size and internode distance varies to a great degree with nutrient balance. In your tank conditions, I would hazard a guess that, if you had classic H. corombosa alongside your 'compacta' you would soon notice substantially larger internode distances and faster growth rates in the 'classic' stems.

Hi everyone,  Just want to pass on that I've been keeping Hygrophila
'compacta' for over a year and I just noticed that one of my stems
has reverted back to its regular corymbosa look with the big leaves
and spread out leaf nodes.  Has anyone else seen this happen?
