|Species:||cordifolius ´Harbich Red´|

|Height:||up to 40 cm|
|Water hardness:||very soft to hard|
|Propagation:||adventitious plantlets on the pedicel|
‘Harbich Red‘ stays much smaller than the original form of E. cordifolius. Emersed leaves are round with hairs on the leaf blades; submersed leaves in aquariums are much narrower. This variety is very robust and has firm, solid leaves. The pedicels develop a lot of adventitious plantlets, although these can develop properly only in open aquariums. The name ‘Harbich Red‘ refers to the reddish color of new leaves, which turn green over time.
