Hygrophila corymbosa Siamensis is a thinner leaved variety of Hygrophila corymbosa. Narrow Leaf Temple, as it is sometimes referred to in the trade, is a strong growing aquarium plant that is best suited for the background areas.
With the exception of small aquariums and those with almost no illumination, there is no situation in which H. corymbosa Siamensis cannot find a good home. Lighting and nutrient demands are moderate, as are those relating to nutrients. In addition, a wide variety of water hardness levels and temperatures are tolerated.
Like many plants, if kept under intense light, the leaves will take on a red or pinkish hue. See pictures to the left.
NOTE: When planting this plant, it is advised to plant each stem separate so light can get to the bottom of each stem.

Growth Rate: Fast
You are buying one bunched plant, four or ore stems.
Plant weight included with all bunched plants.
Stem plants are usually cuttings of plants that generally don't come with roots. This is how stem plants are sold in the aquatic plant industry, although at times, my stem plants may come with roots because I have been growing them out. All 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.
