Echinodorus argentinensis


Sword plants are now distributed throughout the US and Argentina. E. argentinensis is one of the larger varieties and requires ample space in an aquarium. It is well-suited to open aquariums as its sturdy emersed leaves are highly ornamental. With a little patience you will find it produces flower shoots holding white blossoms. Requires nutrient-rich substrate and moderate to strong lighting.
