Hygrophila difformis is beautiful and undemanding. A plant for
beginners which can help create a balance in the aquarium from the start. Its
rapid growth helps prevent algae because the plant absorbs a great number of
nutrients from the water. The shortage of micro-nutrients leads to pale leaves,
which may be an indication that the aquarium needs fertiliser. In large
aquariums its lobed leaves can create a distinctive group.
