Hi ingg,
Is your posted pic called Hygrophila Sp. 'Low Grow' ?:confused:
Thanks :D
Nope, you misunderstood the "low grow"... the person is looking for some Hygrophila Sp. that Kakkoii don't know the name and hope some one to bring out any thing is "low grow". That picture is just Ingg here think might be the one that Kakkoii looking for, which is low/short growing Hygrophila.

I know there is one low growing which I am looking for too... Hygrophila sp from Araguaia. http://public.fotki.com/lytus/h/hygrophilaspfromaraguaia.html here is a link of that picture. unless Kakkoii means "low light growing".

LOL so many new low growing hygros! House that photo seems to be the same as what GWAPA calls low grow. Which is probably Staurogyne sp

Pretty funny. Actually the one I posted develops a orange/reddish stem and is not nearly as big as the one featured in the August TOTM.

Dunno where Roraima came from. I guess it's when Inspire started selling it as such? That looks to be the same as the plant called Hygrophila sp. 'Porto Velho'. That's what Cavan called it, so I'll conservatively stick to my guns on that one =]

It's too bad that trying to buy a specific low-growing hygro has become so difficult due to all the different names out there!

This is the sp. I have.
There is not nearly enough to propagate, but I got it from a member here on APC.
Hygrophila sp 'Araguaia' is the correct name?



Did you find what you were looking for Kakkoi?

Looks like Hygrophila sp 'Araguaia' to me too. It easy to tell, it has the red leaves. Also called Hygrophila sp 'red'
Yes and No. Yes the picture is of Hygrophila sp. 'Araguaia', but no it's not the same as Hygrophila sp. 'Red'. Hygrophila sp. 'Red' is anything but slow growing and it is absolutely huge, like 8" in diameter huge. It creeps like a 'Araguaia', but due to it's size it's not suitable for even larger tanks.

Gimme that Araguaia!!

I know two of them... "low grow" that I have and I think is actually that Staurogyne sp., and porto vehlo which is definitely a different plant. Never heard of this roraima thing though, and can find no mention of it outside hits from the swap and shops as a hygro. Wonder if it is yet a third variant?



In any event... kakkoii, never heard back from you, hope that package arrived well for you!
