Echinodorus cordifolius 'Mini'


Dennerle has been growing this mini creeping burrhead for many years, since it was discovered in the early 1980s in an imported shipment. This is an ideal plant for smaller aquariums, such as the 60 L Nano Cube or the 60 cm standard aquarium. Growing to a height of just 25 cm, this creeping burrhead is one of the small species and varieties. Its light green leaves contrast beautifully with dark green or colorful plants. Adequate nutrition and good lighting will produce particularly compact rosettes.
