Re: E. uruguayensis

The species, uruguayensis, currently includes several different varieties,
according to Kasselmann (Aquqrienpflanzen).  One is the so-called
narrow-leaved uruguayensis, which is always green.  There is also the old
green horemanii and the old red horemanii, both of which have much broader
leaves.  I have had the red horemanii and the narrow-leaved variety, and
they were quite different plants.  The narrow-leaved variety can become a
very large plant, and can switch to producing floating oval leaves with
very long petioles.  The red horemanii grown under the same conditions has
not produced floating leaves
