ECHINODORUS DSCHUNGELSTAR NO. 2
'Small Bear' (‘Kleiner Bär’) has been commercially available since 1995 and is still one of the most popular varieties that have red leaves. In aquaria these plants produce a compact rosette ranging from rust-red to deep, dark red. Older plants can grow to 25 cm. As with many Echinodorus varieties, there are major differences between emersed and submerged leaves. Greenhouse cultivation produces 'Small Bear' in a strong green, but it develops red underwater leaves after just a few days in an aquarium. It’s a never-ending source of wonder!
