Lobelia Cardinalis (dwarf, small form) is a very attractive foreground plant. When Lobelia cardinalis grows above water or near the water surface, they will have a stunning purple color. However, the color will turn in to bright green when they are fully submerged. Lobelia Cardinalis will grow well under medium to high light. CO2 will make the plants bigger, and thicker stems. Its unique appearance and growth habit makes it an ideal foreground plant. 

Some plants may not be in their full aquatic form upon arrival and stem plants may not have any roots yet. You may see some loss of leaves within the first couple weeks while it transitions to its aquatic form. This is perfectly normal as long as the structure remains intact.
