Neat plant, adds a different look to my aquarium. Plant arrived nice and safe, it seemed to survive the shipping process easily. Almost no die-back, and within 2 wks has begun to anchor itself to rocks. All my aquarium plants have come from Aquarium Co-op and I cant say enough good things about them.
This is in a 36 gal bow front, w a Fluval planted 3.0 (24 in).

Love it!

A plant I’ve liked for a long time, was so excited to finally get it! Adds some great texture to my tank. Hope I can keep it looking good!

Hygrophilia pinnatifida

Worst plant purchase ever made. Plant arrived with nearly all its leaves broken off and crushed. Will never buy from this seller again


the plants came in healthy and went through a bit of a melting phase, now they are doing great


After having luck with other hygro species, I went into the retail store and purchased a pot of pinnatifida after asking an employee if I would have a good time trying to get it to grow. I know the plant was labeled “intermediate” but so are some of the other plants I’ve had success with so that’s why I asked before purchasing. After encouraging words from the employee, I brought it home about 3 weeks ago and now it’s completely melted away to nothing. Not blaming the staff or judging the quality of the plant (as the employees and plant quality are always on point to a T) just more or less disappointed it didn’t work out.
I have scarlet temple and “standard” willow hygro in the same tank from the Co Op doing fine and growing insanely well. I also tried it planted in my substrate and planted like a rhyzome plant like anubias or java fern and I also dose all of the “Easy” ferts.

Will continue to buy from the Co Op, of corse, just sad I had a notsogreat experience with this plant in particular.
