Echinodorus 'Red Chameleon'


Somewhat smaller than the variety E. ′Green Chameleon′, the new variety Echinodorus ′Green Chameleon′ stays at a height of around 30 cm. Even in an emersed state, the leaf blades have a red coloring, however the true beauty only becomes fully apparent in the aquarium. Under strong lighting its growth is compact and the central leaves develop a strong deep red color. Nutrient-rich substrate, regular liquid fertilisation and adequate CO2 guarantee strong growth.
