A very compact variety of Hygrophila corymbosa, with the leaves set close to the stalk.
Forms numerous side shoots, enhancing the compact appearance. The leaves are a dark brownish green when the plant leaves the nursery, but after a transitional period in the aquarium they turn light green and silver-white on the underside. In strong light the newest leaves are reddish brown in colour and in time the oldest ones die away - especially in dimmer light. New side shoots are often formed to replace the old ones.
