This species has a bright red stem and a pretty little flower. The leaves are a waxy green and cleaved down the middle. It is an excellent choice for a paludarium or tank that simulates a flood-plane or stream-side habitat, as it is widely tolerant of swampy growing conditions, and even seems to prefer growing in shallow water. I’m not sure of the mature size, but it does grow slower once reaching 8-10 inches, and alters its growth to grow outward rather than up once they have attained that size. My plants are just under a foot and one and a half years old.
