A stunning yet rare plant found in the hobby. Develops red to pinkish leaves once mature and provided with enough nutrients and CO2. Moderately to grow and maintain, may suffer “crypt melt” when acclimating to different water parameters but will rebound. As a result try not to move the plant once settled.

Can be propagated by either splitting the rhizome or cutting and replanting the runners.


  • If received in a pot, please remove all rock wool from the roots. Where possible we try and ship without pots or rockwool. Due to them being non-biodegradable we prefer to propagate in an environmentally conscious way.
  • CO2 will generally yield better growth rates.
  • Stable water conditions are a must, changes should occur over a period of time in order to reduce chances of melting etc.
