Echinodorus 'Small Bear'


Echinodorus XL plants are significantly more voluminous than the standard plants in 5 cm culture pot. Plants in the XL size are exactly the right choice for those who do not want to wait long for lush greenery when setting up a new aquarium!

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 its best in the middle ground.

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