Thus it tolerates low salt concentrations in a brackish water aquarium. 5 - 8 CODE: I HIGH FAST DIFFICULT This Lilaeopsis-species demands less light than Lilaeopsis brasiliensis. Tropica’s founder, Holger Windeløv, found it on Mauritius in 1992. The plant’s height and distance between its leaves depend on the light intensity. The more light it gets, the lower the plant and the denser the leaves. The runners spread round the aquarium, and growth is more compact when planted in a pot or between stones or other objects.

Unlike many of the other Echinodorus-species, Echinodorus ‘Red Diamond’ remains moderate in size, so it is extremely well suited as a solitary plant, even in small aquariums. Increasing the nutrients in the substrate results in more abundant growth, while favourable light conditions promote the formation of the ruby-red leaves. Echinodorus 'Red Flame' 073H PRICE GROUP: POT 10 XL 11 FAMILY: LIGHT: LOW GROWTH RATE: SLOW DEMANDS: EASY Alismataceae ORIGIN: Cultivar HEIGHT: 10 - 30 cm WIDTH: 10 - 20 cm TEMPERATURE: 20 - 30°C GH: 1 - 30 dH pH: 5-8 CODE: E HIGH FAST DIFFICULT A beautiful variety of Echinodorus ‘Ozelot’, cultivated at the Hans Barth Dessau aquarium plant nursery in Germany.

Ludwigia inclinata var. 5 CODE: A HIGH FAST DIFFICULT Ludwigia inclinata var. verticillata is cultivated in swamps, where it has green oval leaves, but after a transitional period under water in the aquarium it develops long, narrow leaves, growing closely together to give a compact appearance. These new leaves are marbled with copper and reddish brown. The plant is found on the Isla de la Juventud off Cuba. 5 - 8 CODE: A HIGH FAST DIFFICULT Ludwigia repens is a familiar and very beautiful aquarium plant.
