Sword Red Flame LG (Echinodorus Red Flame)AquariumPlants.com
Red Flame sword (Echinodorus Red Flame) large bareroot 12" - 18". Large, beautiful bright green & red coloration. Needs a rich substrate (root nutrients). This plant is undemanding and beautiful. A nutritious bottom promotes growth, but the plant needs pruning to prevent it depriving plants underneath of light. Echinodorus Red flame does well even in poorly illuminated aquariums, as it grows towards the light. It is a hardy and easy solitary plant for both beginners and the more experienced with quite large aquariums.

Bought 1 of these and it arrived in excellent condition. Came with a huge root system. Excellent color,
2 day shipping and I saw growth a day after I nestled it into the tank (placed a TOTAL pellet under it). It so far has sprouted several new leaves that have a distinctual redish hue. The stalk they gave me is so large that I am thinking of partitioning it off amongst the tank. GREAT BUY!
I ordered this 7 or 8 months ago and it now fills the center of my 29 gallon. It puts off a new leaf every 3rd day and has crazy amounts of red coloration. It is standing 17 inches tall with 30+ leaves. The picture they have does not show this plants potential.
beautiful and unique sword with dark red/purple patches on leaves. a must!!
This is a great plant, it hasn't ever gotten huge, probably sits 20cm or so high, and had it for about a year now. Started out in a 55gal with 1.5watts of light and it did great for several months, then died back quite a bit. Moved over to a 90 with CO2 and metal halides and it has bounced back quite nicely. Its certainly the best looking out of the 4 different sword species that i have.
received this plant today, came perfect, nice and healthy A+++ very full, nice broad leaves, green and red coloration chad (whover you are) that packed my order would recommend to anyone.
