Echinodorus x barthii is a decorative and beautiful solitary plant for
large aquariums. The leaves change colour from dark-red in the youngest leaves
to dark-green in the oldest. The colour develops well when the light intensity
is high and there are sufficient micro-nutrients in the aquarium. A nutritious
bottom and CO2 addition promote growth. This plant takes a lot of
light from plants underneath, so it must be pruned occasionally. It used to be
sold as ''Double Red''.
