Echinodorus 'Regine Hildebrandt' was created by Tomas Kaliebe from the former nursery ZooLogiCa (Altlandsberg) by crossing Echinodorus 'Ozelot' with E. uruguayensis "horemanii rot". This variety was named after the late social minister of the federal state of Brandenburg Regine Hildebrandt and christened during the Bundesgartenschau 2001 in Potsdam in her presence.
E. 'Regine Hildebrandt' is one of the smaller Echinodorus varieties and grows only to a height of 15 to 20 cm, which makes it highly suitable for smaller tanks or the foreground of large aquaria. Its submersed leaves are of an intensive wine red on the upper side, their form is narrow-ovate, slightly twisted, with a short stalk, up to 10 cm long and 5 cm wide.
This variety need lots of light and nutrients and grows slowly.
