Echinodorus 'Oriental' is a mutation, arising from Echinodorus
'Rosé' in 1992 at Oriental Aquarium in Singapore. The unusual transparent pink
colour of the new leaves makes the plant a speciality, offering the chance to
create new colour contrasts in the aquarium. Powerful light and a nutritious
bottom promote growth. E. 'Oriental' is patented, and may only be
produced commercially by licence.
