Lagenandra meeboldii is a lovely yet rare plant that would likely only come through hobbyist channels. These originate from Sri Lanka and comes in 3 varieties, green, pink and red and exhibits growth behavior similar to its neighborhood friend, the cryptocoryne. The plant exhibits a strong rhizome from which the leaves arise.
There are no reported nutrient demands other than soft water and high light, which is required to induce its signature color and compact growth. These plants will eventually develop and become a tank buster and is best applied to aquariums greater than 30 gallons.
