Under water, this plant develops strongly undulate leaves with a thin membrane and brownish red to pink coloured leaves. The lateral veins are of a slightly darker colour, which gives the leaf a marbled look.
The alternate leaves grow in two lines and have a lineal form. Murdannia sp. ‘Red’ mostly comes into trade after being cultivated emersed, thus its looks are rather inconspicuous.
The emersed stems have a creeping growth habit, are of a brownish red, and their leaves are medium green, slightly undulate and rather robust-looking.
