Hygrophila polysperma 'Rosanervis' (H. polysperma 'Sunset')
This undemanding yet interesting stem plant is one of the easiest colored red plants to grow. Its ability to handle virtually any temperature (18-28C), pH (5-8), or hardness in the typical planted aquarium makes it suitable for many applications. While CO2 and high light are not requirements for this cultivar to grow, they are essential in bringing out the nice red to pink color for which this plant is famous. Iron is another factor in intense colorationï¿½without enough Fe in the water column, this plant will become pale or, in extreme deficiencies, even white.
