No other stem plant can boast colors as rich as those in this particular variety. Brown-red through cherry red hues drift over the stems, and the upper and lower surfaces of the leaves. To ensure that you get the most intense colors, this plant needs good lighting and an adequate supply of CO2. Speed of growth is generally average, so it is advisable to trim the stems every 6–8 weeks. In discus aquariums this South American plant adds a splash of color when combined with sword plants.
