The Hygrophila, Temple Narrow Leaf with its thick stems and broad bright green leaves that can reach a length of 5" underwater, the Hygrophila corymbosa plant makes a unique addition to a freshwater planted aquarium. This plant is amphibious, and if grown out of the water, the leaves become round and very dark in color. The Hygrophila 'Kompakt' takes its name from the compact growing form. The 'Kompakt' will remain shorter but will continue to spread make a nice bunch foreground display.

The Hygrophila, Temple Narrow Leaf plant will grow to a maximum size of 24", and should be pruned regularly to keep it from shading its neighbors. It makes an ideal background plant that will help in hiding the aquarium's equipment. This plant will not begin to branch until the top has been cut. The Hygrophila 'Kompakt' will not grow as tall as the Temple narrow leaf but will continue to spread for a nice cover. Provide a moderate amount of light, of at least 2 to 3 watts per gallon, using full spectrum (5000-7000K) bulbs.

Reproduction within this species is by cuttings. Simply cut the plant at the height that you desire, but leave room for growth, then strip the leaves off of about an inch of the stem, and plant into the gravel. In time, roots will form at the last node and will aid in keeping the plant in place. The Hygrophila plant benefits from regular additions of CO2, iron rich fertilizers, and trace elements.
