Water Wisteria?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi @RyanR,

@T. Payne is correct, that is what the leaves of Water Wisteria (Hygrophila difformis) looks like when it is grown out of the water (emersed form).  The submerged form of the leaves are the frilly almost fern-like leaves you are used to seeing.  Now that the stems are submerged the stems will absorb the nutrients in the leaves which will slowly die off and the stems will use those nutrients for roots and new submerged form leaves.  Hope this helps! -Roy

Thanks everyone. It sounds like it’s just not happening as quickly as I hoped. No big deal. I can see roots coming off of the stems right above the eco complete going into the substrate, so it’s doing something.
