Growing Information:

1. Lighting: Hygrophila serpyllum is adaptable to a range of lighting conditions, from low to high. Higher light levels encourage more compact growth and enhance the vibrancy of its green foliage.

2. Substrate: Plant in a nutrient-rich substrate to support healthy growth. The use of root tabs or liquid fertilizers can supplement the substrate with necessary nutrients.

3. CO2 and Nutrients: While it can thrive in low to medium CO2 environments, supplementing with CO2 can promote more robust growth. Regular dosing of a complete liquid fertilizer ensures the plant receives necessary nutrients.

4. Pruning: Regular pruning is beneficial to control the plant's size and shape. Trimming the top portions encourages lateral growth, creating a bushier appearance.

5. Water Parameters: Maintain stable water parameters with a temperature range of 68-82°F (20-28°C), a slightly acidic to neutral pH between 6.0-7.5, and soft to moderately hard water.

6. Placement: Hygrophila serpyllum is suitable for midground or background placement in aquariums. Its trailing growth makes it an excellent choice for creating a sense of depth in aquascapes.

7. Propagation: Propagate through cuttings or side shoots. Healthy stems can be cut and replanted in the substrate, or side shoots can be separated and planted independently.

8. Challenges: Considered an easy-to-care-for plant, Hygrophila serpyllum is suitable for both beginners and experienced aquarists. Its adaptability and delicate appearance make it a versatile and attractive addition to aquarium setups.

Hygrophila serpyllum's graceful and trailing growth habit brings a sense of movement to freshwater aquariums. Whether used as a backdrop or allowed to cascade over rocks and driftwood, this delicate aquatic plant adds a touch of natural beauty to aquascapes.
