Wisteria (Hygrophila difformis) is grown emerged, does better during shipping, is hardy and undemanding, it will change when grown underwater, the leaves will branch up and become lacy and lighter green in color. A great aquarium plant for beginners and experts alike. Its rapid growth helps prevent algae because the plant absorbs a great number of nutrients from the water. These characteristics make this plant perfect for Nano Tanks and Bowls with no pumps or filters. The lace-like leaves vary in appearance under different conditions.
