Lagenandra meeboldii Rot

Info

The genus Lagenandra is very closely related to the Cryptocorynes and colonises similar habitats. Lagenandra meeboldii is a very varied species and the variety 'Red' is a wonderfully colored plant for the midground. Until now most species in the genus Lagenandra were unsuitable for aquariums, however this new plant from India does impressively well in an underwater landscape. Here they also form a strong rhizome like the Anubias, but they should be planted into the substrate. With its striking color this Indian beauty makes a great feature in a plant aquarium.
