overview
Add an easy-to-grow Cardinal Plant favored in Dutch-style freshwater planted aquariums! Native to the eastern and central United States, Lobelia cardinalis, also known as "Cardinal Flower," is commonly found growing emergent along streams, ponds, and waterways. Kept in its submersed state in the home aquarium, its stems produce bright green leaves with scarlet red undersides.

Provide Lobelia cardinalis "Dwarf" moderate to high lighting to prevent wilting and to promote compact, lush growth. CO2 injection is highly recommended for success, along with plenty of micronutrient dosing. This unique stem plant grows upward at a moderate pace, producing side shoots and numerous white roots at the nodes.

The Cardinal Plant's slow and dwarf growth makes it ideal for mid- ground placement to add density and interest to planted aquarium displays. Arrange and prune into neat rows for a classic Dutch "street" aquascaping effect.
