Description

This Lagenandra from the south-west of India has not long been known as aquarium plant. In Europe, it is also found in trade under the name Lagenandra meeboldii "Pink", but it differs from the plant traded under the same name in the USA. This Lagenandra looks a lot like a medium-sized wide-leaved Cryptocoryne. Under good light it has a nice orange-brown to pink leaf colour. It grows to 10 to 30 cm in height and has a spreading growth habit. Other than most crypts, it does not form underground runners, but has a thick rhizome. A nutrient-rich substrate is recommendable for Lagenandra meeboldii 'Red'.

Lagenandra meeboldii originates from the south-Indian states Karnataka and Kerala on shaded marshy riverbanks up to a height of 1200 m above sea level.generalreferences#1
This Lagenandra is very variable, there are forms of different size, leaf form or colour. A green and a red variety have been in emersed cultivation in botanical gardens and as paludarium plants by some hobbyists for quite some time. However, the insight that at least the red variety can be kept continually submersed in the aquarium is a rather new one.generalreferences#1 It is probable that some other forms of L. meeboldii are suitable aquarium plants.

In the USA, Lagenandra meeboldii 'Pink' is known as high-growing aquarium plant. According to photos in internet forums, its emersed and submersed form seems to have more longish and larger leaf blades than the red form of L. (read more)

Vielen Dank für die kleine, aber dafür sehr kräftige, schön dunkelrote Pflanze. Die wird sich im Zusammenspiel mit der hellgrünen Zwergschwerrtpflanze gut machen!
