Eriocaulon Quinquangulare aka "Red Erio"
would not recommend:lol: kept it for like 4 months and it was growing well, after a painful adjustment period. after that i had 6 nice sized plantlets growing well, co2 went off a couple days, and they just melted fully.... they really need a lot of co2. anyway, i should be ordering my next batch of quins soon LOL.
Cryptocoryne Flamingo
currently trying this one, hope it's easier than the red eriocaulon.

Gimme more pls :)
Thanks for the input so far everyone!
I want to add Blyxa Aubertii. Apparently a slow grower? And what about Rotala Florida? I heard it’s not very fast either but beautiful colours 🤔

You can check out the Floridas in Libba's journal. Very nice plants though technically purple, not red.

The two nymphaea pygmae cultivars I’ve managed to get going in aquarium conditions have predominantly red colouration and are only slightly faster growing than Anubias.

Both of the persicaria I have tried have been painfully slow but very good colours.
