>> I'm having problem growing Hygrophila species in my tank. I tried both the
Hygrophila stricta and Sunset Hygrophila. <<

 I have had trouble with some of the Hygros in the past, until I started
potting them up in a clay pot with potting soil and some micronized iron or a
piece of laterite. Since then, they have grown like weeds.  I suspect that my
water is a deficient in something that they need, although I'm not sure what,
since I use Duplaplant 24 on a daily basis.  I _do_ know that potted up, they
grow like weeds for me.  You might want to give that a try.
