Re: Hygrophila polysperma Propagation

I can speak for Hygrophila polysperma v. "corybosa" it's light green an
doesn't go emersed on you. It also needs no trimming since if left to
itself, grows like a true aquatic bush instead of a vine. It is also more
demanding than "wild type" polysperma. To propogate, you need at least a
leaf-stem joint to poke in the gravel.

Wild type polysperma will form roots FROM A SINGLE LEAF left floating on
the surface, hence its a major problem in South Florida waterways along
with cabomba, wisteria and others. Left to itself, polysperma will even
grow emersed. There is almost nothing you can do wrong in terms of
"A-stumpin' in Ft.Lauderdale"
