Here, me again... it takes me some time to write about it. How did You got wind of the "new" Hygro?
Recently I wrote an article about the plant in the German journal Aqua Planta. It was found by a Swiss hobbyist early 2008 in the north of Goa on the border to Maharashtra in India, I've ID'ed it when emersed sprouts had developed flowers. Some other aquarists in Germany and Austria (and beyond?) are also growing H. pinnatifida. This stuff is growing and propagating rather slowly.
Pics and more infos coming soon...

Got it from Heiko

It's nice, it's slow, and it is quite good at attaching itself to wood and other items..

Miremonster I got your article 3 weeks ago! I have a couple good friends there that send me articles and magazines every now and then; so please say hi to Claus Ditter Junga when you see him next as well as Christel!
I am still waiting for the translation to be finish so I can learn more about this awesome plant.
Could I please get your e-mail address? There are a few questions I would like to ask if possible.
Thanks for the picture Martin, now I want it even more!
Cheers,
Luis

We've only tried a small fraction of them. I don't think we'll ever run out of new stuff.

Hello Luis,
that's great that You have connections to Germany! I've sent You a PM.
My H. pinnatifida photo on the "Aqua Planta" cover is a little too much "doctored", the plants actually don't look this red (however, the underside of the submersed leaves is pink.) The last photo in my article isn't from me, I wonder who contributed it.
@Martin: fine, it's growing also in Denmark I think this Hygro will become more common in the hobby.
It propagates mainly by creeping, runner-like stems, developing on the lower nodes of upright stems.
