Echinodorus Cordifolius 'Hybrid Red'
Echinodorus Cordifolius 'Hybrid Red' is a harder to keep cross breed of the Deep Purple sword and we believe Echinodorus Cordifolius (Marble Queen Swords). The last two pictures are good examples of how it got its name.
(The more a Sword is crossed...generally speaking... they are a tad less hardy because of this.)
It has some light "Marbling" (is that a word?) to it. The leaves are both redish and yellow.
Like ALL SWORDS, this plant is a HEAVY ROOT Feeder. We recommend a dirted tank, but at the very least root tabs. The rewards of good nutrients at the substrate are worth the extra effort it might take. (This plant knows how it eats... It eats at its roots!)
We will often send short sprouts. You can see their height potential in the pictures though. We have some that are about 18 inches in length.
These Swords would DEVOUR our New "Dustin's Dirt Packs" which contain everything you need for a good nutrient rich substrate....
