    Polygonum Red

    Price:  £3.19

    This plant is a stunning new addition to the hobby hailing from Brazil. Under the properconditions, it is arguably the most intensely colored species available foraquariums. Although not really suitable for low light tanks, this plant prospers under the sort of carbon dioxide injected, high light tanks that have become so popular in recent years. To achieve maximum coloration and healthy growth, very bright light and permanent CO2 are vital. Also important are high volume iron dosing and phosphates of 1ppm or higher. As far as its use in aquascapes goes, perhaps the greatest challenge presented by this species is the temptation to utilize too much of it; a few stems go a long way! this plant possesses the classic rigid and upright Persicaria form and is thus amenable to being positioned in a stand of a few odd numbered stems. Against a background of light green plants, it is particularly striking.
