This Echinodorus is still a rather rare plant. Echinodorus Joyo Bright Star is a medium-sized hybrid, its height is around 20-25 cm. The leaves sit on a short petiole that merges smoothly into the leaf base. The leaves are beautifully broadly lanceolate. The color of the leaves is deep dark red. The young leaf is bright purple-red. Old leaves are brown. The main veins stand out clearly on the leaf plate, with the cross veins forming an original pattern between them. It contains quite a few leaves. The content of Echinodorus Joyo Bright Star is not whimsical enough. The parameters of the water do not play a major role, but it accepts water of medium hardness more favorably. By adding trace elements to the water and the presence of nutrient soil, it develops faster and the color of the plant becomes more expressive. The brightness of the color also depends on the intensity of the lighting.[1]
