Indian Hygrophile or Bolotnik: Features of care and reproduction

This plant is also called the Indian star. In aquariums it can reach a considerable length, but can be grown in any volume of water, it is a plant of the background.

Hygrophilus has long stems and oval green leaves.

Hygrophil is a fairly unpretentious plant that grows equally throughout the year. He loves the water of tropical aquariums 24-28 ° C, with a decrease in temperature slows down its growth.

Lives in soft water, up to 8 ° hardness and likes regular water changes. If the hardness of the water is much higher – then the lower leaves begin to decay, and the new ones grow smaller.

Hygrophil, depending on its variety, can have 3 garden forms:

  • With rounded at the end of leaves of light green color, having a size of 70×15 mm.
  • The shape of the leaves is similar to that of the previous one, but the streaks are yellow-orange, the color of the leaf is reddish.
  • Narrow pointed leaves with red-brown color.

Indian hygrophil is a light-loving plant, when using fluorescent lamps in an aquarium, their power should be at least 0.5 watts / liter, again this is a very approximate indicator of illumination since modern fluorescent lamps for aquariums have a light output indicator much higher than in old LB lamps. Duration of daylight should not be reduced below 12 hours.

If you notice that the leaves grow small and the plant itself is significantly increased in length – then you should increase the power of lighting in your aquarium.

Hygrophil mnogosemennaya (Indian) does not require additional feeding in the soil, but the layer of soil should be sufficiently thick and silted, because This plant consumes most of the substances through the roots. For the same reason, you should not let it float on the surface of the water or thicker without rooting.

Hygrophil is very easily propagated by cutting the stem, for this comes a stem with 4-5 verticils of the leaves and immediately planted into the ground. Be sure to dig into the ground lower pair of leaves and due to the rapid root formation of the plant “accepted”.

A multi-seeded hygrophilus is a marsh plant that can be grown in an aquarium, for this very reason you can use it in paludariums and wet greenhouses. The main thing is to organize for him bright enough lighting.
