Hygrophila pinnatifida is a beautiful and interesting stem plant from India. It obtains brown, patched leaves on the surface with a distinctive burgundy color underneath. It creates horizontal side shoots and the top shoots should be pinched out to maintain compact and attractive growth. The horizontal side shoots easily attach to both wood and rocks. The color is attractive when planted in small groups with a plain background. Intense lighting ensures compact growth due to the plant's slow to medium growth rate and the stronger the light, the more colorful the plant becomes.
