TCulture Echinodorus Red Devil
'Red Devil' is a narrow-leaved, relatively small Echinodorus cultivar, bred by Tomas Kaliebe. In its underwater form it develops red leaves with slightly wavy edge and reaches a height of about 20 cm.
Echinodorus 'Red Devil' is mostly delivered in its emersed (terrestrial) form with rather green, longer stalked, coarser leaves. Planted into the aquarium, it will develop new submerged, colourful leaves.
As well as other Echinodorus, 'Red Devil' grows best with a nutrient-rich substrate. At least moderate light intensity is recommendable; more light enhances the red coloration. The most favourable temperatures lie between 22 and 28 °C.
'Red Devil' stands out from other red Echinodorus cultivars by its narrow leaf shape and rather small size. It can be used in smaller tanks and looks best as solitary plant or small, loose group in the midground, in larger aquariums also in the foreground.
