Echinodorus cordifolius 'Harbich Red'


'Harbich Red' stays much smaller than the original form of E. cordifolius. Emersed leaves are round with hairs on the leaf blades; submersed leaves in aquariums are much narrower. This variety is very robust and has firm, solid leaves. The pedicels develop a lot of adventitious plantlets, although these can develop properly only in open aquariums. The name 'Harbich Red' refers to the reddish color of new leaves, which turn green over time.
