Echinodorus 'Small Bear'


In the tropical climate of our greenhouses, selected species are being affectionately cared for and cultivated over several months until they have grown to XXL size. For the establishment and design of larger aquariums, these "solitaires" are perfectly suited and give the impression of a rich landscape right from the start.

The variety 'Little Bear', the name already gives the hint, is one of the smaller cultivars of the popular South American species. In small aquariums up to 60 cm edge length, you can plant it well in the background. In larger aquariums, this reddish-brown beauty is at a perfect advantage in the middle ground.

Our new Power Caps support the growth potential of the strong rooted Echinodorus.
