    Wow, that is an odd one.

    I will ask some of the plant folks I know and see if I get any responses.

    Thanks Dino.

    From the online reading I've been doing It's not hard to grow and was introduced into the trade from India in 2008. Not expensive like most new plants either. just wanted some back up to that reading I guess :)

    That is a new one to me too. If you get it you'll have to let us know how it does. I am always looking for new plants to add to my tanks!

    I ordered this plant and got it in the mail today. It's really pretty. The plant came in really good condition and there were two pieces stuck together. He also sent me free plants :)
    1) Hygrophila pinnatifida in hand
    2) in the tank.
    3) free plants
    4) free plants up close

    have you figured any more out? It looks like a cool ground level plant in your tank, or has it perked up and is now standing? Im curious.... Also what are its requirements?

    Hmmmmm maybe we can add this one to the plant database and be the first to the block with it?
