Hygrophila polysperma is one of the "easiest" aquatic plants. Even in the worst possible conditions it will continue to grow. But of course, improving the conditions is, obviously, beneficial to the plant and its growth. Under good light the shoots turn a reddish-brown colour. This plant grows very quickly and needs to be cut back more frequently than other stem plants. Highly recom-mended for new setups and as a preventive measure against algae.
