Echinodorus argentinensis


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!

Echinodorus argentinensis is a robust and good-growing species for the background. In open aquariums, the plant can grow out of the water - creating an attractive and natural aquarium style appearance. With a little patience, its small white flowers will also appear, creating a floral mood in the living area. 

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