Echinodorus 'Regine Hildebrandt' is a beautiful medium-sized Echinodorus cultivar. It was named by the breeder Tomas Kaliebe in honour of the then social minister of Brandenburg and entered the trade in 2001 first. Its submerged leaves are oval, somewhat turned sideways and display dark red tones. Also the older leaves don't much turn green. In its emersed (terrestrial) form, the plant has rather green leaves. Planted in the aquarium, it will develop its red submerged leaves after few days.
As well as other swordplants, Echinodorus 'Regine Hildebrandt' develops best with good makro- and micronutrient supply via the substrate. Its light requirements are moderate, however good lighting enhances the intense coloration of its submerged leaves. The water parameters are of subordinate importance; CO2 addition is not always necessary but very beneficial for the growth.
This colourful swordplant is recommendable for the midground of larger tanks or as specimen plant in small tanks.
