Water Hedge is a very decorative “red” plant. With the bronze color on top of the leaf and the deep purple colored underside of the leaf this plant offers a nice contrast to the mostly green plants in an aquarium. Although most red plants are somewhat difficult to grow in an aquarium, this plant is relatively easy. With adequate light and fertilizer the plant grows vigorously and with good color. This plant is produced above water at the nursery but makes an easy transition to underwater growth.
