Echinodorus 'Rubin' is a decorative hybrid between Echinodorus horemanii ''rot'' and Echinodorus x barthii. The transparent, ruby-red leaves with light leaf ribs provide a particularly intensive sheen. An undemanding plant whose growth is stimulated by CO2 addition and a nutritious bottom. A good solitary plant for large aquariums. [TROPICA]

I have had great success with this plant in my 30 gallon tall tank. The leaves nearly reach the surface 2 feet up, and I have low light and liquid ferts. Iron really brings out the red in the leaves!
