Big, bold, beautiful

If you're looking for a low maintenance red beauty for your tank, look no further. This plant has made me fall in love with my 10 gallon tank again. Surprisingly I experienced no melting back, just explosive new growth as soon as it was planted and established. Very healthy and robust. I highly recommend anyone purchase one of these gems. Especially if you have fish or other creatures that enjoy resting on leaves. My pygmy corydoras are almost always hanging out on the lotus foliage.
