Features Growth Rate: Medium Maximum Height: 50cm Leaf Colour: Green with red, purples and pink tones Place of Origin: South America

A desirable plant that develops lovely shades of green, purple, red and pink. Typically found in rivers, lakes and swamps. Strong lighting is the key to maintaining this fabulous midground plant, without which it will lose colour. Great background plant in nano aquaria. Do not crowd, it requires wriggle room and gentle water circulation to thrive.

The colourful leaves provide a nice contrast to other plants in the aquarium.
Supplied potted in a plastic pot.

This plant benefits from fine fertile planting substrate.

Water conditions

pH: 6.5 – 7.8 soft to moderately hard preferred
Temperature: 24 – 27 °C

Ease of care
Medium. Fertilise regularly. Will benefit from CO2 but not required for normal growth. Stem cuttings will take root in substrate. Using stems with nodal root increases success rate. Do not remove these roots when they form, they are working parts providing nutrients to the plant.

Bright lighting is required.
