Echinodorus 'Small Bear' has been commercially available since 1995 and is still one of the most popular red-leaved varieties. In aquariums this plant produces a compact rosette ranging from rust red to deep, dark red. Older plants can grow up to 25 cm. As with many Echinodorus varieties, there are major differences between emersed and submersed leaves. Greenhouse cultivation produces Echinodorus 'Small Bear' in a powerful green, but it develops red underwater leaves after just a few days in an aquarium. It's a never-ending source of wonder!
