A very compact variety of Hygrophila corymbosa, with the leaves set
close to the stalk. Forms numerous side shoots, enhancing the compact appearance.
The leaves are a dark brownish green when the plant is delivered, but after a
transitional period in the aquarium they turn light green and silver-white on
the underside. In strong light the newest leaves are reddish brown in colour and
in time the oldest ones die away - especially in dimmer light. New side shoots
form often, to replace the old.
