Water Wisteria is an attractive freshwater aquarium plant, originating from Thailand and India. It has finely branched, bright green leaves with a delicate appearance; its unique and irregularly shaped leaves fill out quickly to brighten any aquascape. Water Wisteria is a fast grower and prized in the aquascaping community for its ability to clean your tank of pollutants and keep it healthy.
Water Wisteria Sunlight Requirements
Water Wisteria requires low to medium light levels, but both the water temperature and lighting will affect the shape of the leaf. Lower-intensity lighting may cause the plant's lower leaves to drop off and increase the space between the leaves. Water Wisteria will appear more bushy and compact when higher-intensity lighting is used.
Water Wisteria Care
Maintain aquarium water temperatures in the range of 70 - 86 degrees F. Temperatures outside of this range can slow the rate of photosynthesis. Avoid extremes in the water pH–this plant prefers to be in a range of 6.5- 7.5. Depending on how you plant it, this species can climb upwards to the surface of the water or spread horizontally across the substrate surface like a green carpet. As a carpet, the thick green growth will visually brighten up and soften the bottom of the tank. Water wisteria is a fast grower, but it will stay compact with a bit of regular maintenance pruning. It can be propagated from cuttings or by side shoots; be sure to use sharp, clean scissors when cutting or trimming.
Watering Water Wisteria
Avoid extremes in pH level; this plant prefers to be in a range of 6.5-7.5. Keep water temperatures between 70 - 86 degrees F.
Feeding Water Wisteria
Pale leaves are an indication the aquarium needs fertilizer. An occasional CO2 injection will produce fuller growth.
