Echinodorus 'Red Diamond' is an attractive rosette plant and not something you see every day. Its beautiful green leaves resemble rabbit ears and display a distinctive vein pattern. With good light and nutrient-rich substrates, they turn ruby red, the veins turn a deep red hue and the leaf tops take on a shimmer. The leaves reach a length of 15 to 25 cm. However, this plant does not grow too tall or wide and is therefore also suitable for smaller aquariums. A beautiful addition to your aquarium as a solitary plant and also suitable for beginners!
