In culture it is not very whimsical, water parameters and temperature have little influence on its development and growth rate. But the Echinodorus 'Izabella' is very sensitive to light intensity. Only in very strong light can it produce young leaves that are painted a bright red or red-crimson color. The leaves then turn brown.
