Re: [AGA-Member] Re: Hygrophila 'compacta'

Jeff, if I send you some of this plant that grows in the foreground of my guppy tank, will you tell me what you think it is? It sure does grow low. It doesn't grow fast, but does hug the substrate. It's a low-light tank, though.

Mom, it's the same stuff I'm sending you.

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.
