Echinodorus x rose

Echinodorus x rose (family Alismataceae) is a strong plant with yellow green to pink young leaves when grown emersed but dark red when submerged. The older leaves are dark green to an almost brown colour. This plant needs a good fertile substrate to ensure good growth and is generally an easy plant to maintain in the aquarium. Propagation is carried out the same as the other species by plantlets taken off the flower stalks.
