    Echinodorus Dschungelstar Nr. 16 Rote Mamba


    Origin / Breeder : Julius Hoechstetter, Trostberg [1]

    Dennerle plant type: rosette with lanceolate leaves, wavy leaf edge Plant color: bright red, young leaf color red In addition: suitable for beginners CO₂-feed required additional fertilization is recommended, strong lighting Description: Echinodorus Red Mamba (Jungle Star No. 16) is a rather rare Echinodorus. Its leaves are like elongated rose petals with slightly wavy edges. Older leaves lose their bright color and turn from reddish brown to olive green. Culturally, Echinodorus Red Mamba is not picky. Temperature, water hardness and pH (up to 8.0) can have a wide range. However, growing medium, micronutrient supplementation, CO2 supply, and bright lighting contribute to intense coloration.[2].
