Staurogyne sp. 'Low Grow' first was brought onto the market as presumed Hygrophila species, however, flower characteristics hinted to it being a Staurogyne. It looks very much like Staurogyne repens from Rio Cristalino, however, it differs from that species by its wider sprouts (up to around 10 cm) and more longish leaves. Up to now it seems to be far more widely spread as aquarium plant in the USA, it is still not very well-known in Europe, and it may be doubted that it is even in cultivation.
