Which of these plants would be easier to keep in a 10 gallon with moderate lighting and very small gravel granules? I plan on using some of these as background planting.
I'm a beginner, so do let me know if they require any special care?

Thanks in advance!

Tropica says they are basically the same when it comes to care and height:

Hygrophila polysperma - Tropica Aquarium Plants
Hygrophila corymbosa - Tropica Aquarium Plants

Hygrophila Stricta is really Hygrophila corymbosa 'Stricta'. Tropica didn't have that specific variety of the corymbosa but I gave you what they had. Good luck!

Too funny! I actually have a ton of polysperma, super easy to grow... does well in ecocomplete and standard gravel, from low tech to high... looks amazing!
Don't have corymbosa but reputed to be just as easy....

You've got some very gorgeous plants! Love those tiny bubbles on the leaves.
Well, then, I'll go for the polysperma- it's a bit cheaper, lol. Thanks for the pictures!

See... I told you.. she rules.

Jocelyn Adelman I'm going to distract you with a 50% off Tropica coupon and then hijack your tank when you aren't looking.
