Lagenandra meeboldii “red”
This plant is originally from India and is quite similar to a medium-sized, broad-leaved Cryptocoryne. It can be used in the aquarium like Cryptocorynes, but needs sufficient light to develop colours.
The leaves are 4-8 cm wide and 6-12 cm long, so the whole plant becomes relatively wide.
The colours range from dusty green with bright violet to red-violet often on the same leaf. New leaves are pale pink.

Lagenandra meeboldii "red"
Lagenandra meeboldii is a genus that shares similarities with Cryptocorynes and inhabits comparable environments. While previous species in the Lagenandra genus were not suitable for aquariums, the 'Red' variety of Lagenandra meeboldii has proven to thrive in underwater settings. Like Anubias, Lagenandra meeboldii forms a robust rhizome, but it should be planted into the substrate. The striking color of this Indian plant makes it a beautiful addition to any aquatic landscape.
