Hygrophila corymbosa 'angustifolia' is a great choice for background areas of the planted aquarium.  It has Long slender leaves which will wave in any current creating a pleasing look. If Hygrophilia Augustifolia is kept under strong light the leaves will take on a very pretty deep red or pink color.
 
Once established Hygrophila corymbosa 'angustifolia' is fast growing and because it is fast growing, this plant can be used as cycling plant as it does great taking in extra nitrate, nitrite, and ammonia. It will also help fight algae outbreaks as it will take up extra nitrate which causes algae to grow.

Planting Instructions

Stem plants are usually cuttings of plants that normally don't come with roots. This is how stem plants are sold in the aquatic plant industry although at times my stem plant do come with roots because I have been growing them out to sell. My stem plants come with a plant weight that holds the plant in place and is safe for your tank.

To plant just let the weight lay on your substrate and the stems will grow roots throughout your substrate. You can also plant the tips, about 1/4" in your substrate if you prefer.
