Description

A narrow-leaved fast-growing knotweed from Asia. In the trade it is also labeled Persicaria sp. 'Red' and Polygonum sp. Kawagoneum. It develops beautiful pink to orange-red colours under water, given that the light is intensive (at least 0.5 watts/litre). The form of the leaves reminds of willow leaves, they grow to a length of around 8 to 12 cm and to a width of 0.6 to 1 cm.

Persicaria (or Polygonum) sp. 'Kawagoeanum' (sometimes also called Polygonum sp. 'Pink') is a relatively new aquarium plant. It is still not quite clear which species it belongs to, it could be Persicaria kawagoeana (= Polygonum kawagoeanum) from East Asia, though. Like most knotweeds, it inhabits wet locations like bogs, ditches or riverbanks. It grows above as well as below the waterline.
Accordingly, Persicaria sp. 'Kawagoeanum' can be cultivated emersed as well as submersed. It is not regularly found in pet stores or online shops, and is usually more readily available from other hobbyists.

P. sp. 'Kawagoeanum' is often mistaken for Persicaria (Polygonum) sp. 'Sao Paulo', and it has been in trade under that erroneous name, too.
For differentiation, please see the description of Persicaria sp. 'Sao Paulo'.

Hier bekommt man tatsächlich, was man auf den Bildern sieht. Höhe, kräftige, schöne Pflanzen, die nach dem Einsetzen aussehen, als wären sie schon Wochen lang da.
