  • No other stem plant can boast colours as rich as this particular variety. Brown-red through cherry red hues drift over the stems, upper surface and underside of the leaves. To ensure that you get the most intense colours, this plant needs good lighting and an adequate supply of CO2. Speed of growth is generally average, so it is advisable to shorten or prune back the stems every 6-8 weeks. In discus aquaria this South American plant adds a splash of colour when combined with sword plants.
