Lobelia Cardinalis, also known as Cardinal Plant or Scarlet Lobelia, originates from North America. This plant features short, thick stems with thick and fleshy leaves that are often a deep scarlet-red on the underside. This plant is hardy and undemanding. It will tolerate a wide range of aquarium conditions. It is a slow grower and as a result it requires very little maintenance or care.

    I received several plants that I ordered, quickly, all in excellent condition. The Cardinal is doing very well under my Fluval nano light. it has doubled in size in 2 weeks. I will order again!

    Packaged well, hearty plant, and already growing. Put it in the tank a few days ago, and added a little seachem flourish. This sucker is already sprouting new growth

    Vibrant colorful potted plants. Well rooted, abundant leaves, sturdy specimens. Look great in my 15 gal flex foreground. Nice to have some color in the tank!

    All pots were healthy and rooted and were packaged with care. They look great in my tank and are growing fast. Note: they grow green when submerged.
