Echinodorus Cordifolius 'Hybrid Red'
AS OF 12-26-19 These plants are FIRE. ALL OF THEM have been underwater growing for over a month. They have the great red color inside of them. They are currently living in a 125 that gets a nice water change about every other day.
THE PLANT YOU WILL GET WILL BE AROUND A FOOT TALL. They will look like the poor iphone pics. (Cut me some slack, my Cannon 90D was stolen out of my car over Christmas break)
I have 15 available at this time at this size and this price....
You can see our "In house" plant in the pot. *That's our baby- Yours will be smaller and look like the others. (Still over 12 inches tall with probably 6 leaves- ALL UNDERWATER GROWN)
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. (Our "IN HOUSE" Sword shows the benefits of this)
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....
Don't Forget To Buy our Growth Juice and Iron Supplements for your plants!!
Love this plant. It will grow into my centerpiece. Plant arrived in great shape and love the service from you guys.
