Growing Information:

1. Lighting: Hygrophila difformis "Variegated" is adaptable to various lighting conditions, from low to high. Higher light levels can enhance the intensity of colors and promote healthy growth.

2. Substrate: Plant in a nutrient-rich substrate to provide essential nutrients for robust 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 contribute to more vigorous growth. Regular dosing of a complete liquid fertilizer ensures the plant receives necessary nutrients.

4. Pruning: Regular pruning helps maintain the desired shape and prevent the plant from becoming too dense. Trimming the top portions encourages lateral growth, creating a bushier appearance.
