Echinodorus Red Diamond is a hybrid sword plant originating from Ukraine. This particular sword seems to be a combination of both Echinodorus Horemanii Red and Echinodorus Barthii. E. Red Diamond produces bold, bright colors in the aquarium. Unlike other aquarium sword plants, Echinodorus Red Diamond is a medium-sized species and is suitable for moderately sized aquariums as well as in single plant displays.Â
When using inert substrates such as sand or gravel, it is important to supplement the plants with root tabs as Echinodorus are heavy root feeders. Nutritious aquarium soil is preferable along with medium to high lighting to help promote brightly colored growth.Â Like other aquarium swords, Echinodorus Red Diamond can be grown immersedÂ and is great for pond-style planted tanks and Wabi Kusa!
