Echinodorus grisebachii 'Amazonicus'


This sword plant inhabits Brazil’s Amazon region. It is also known as “Amazon Sword” and grows very large, very well in aquariums up to 200 L. Submersed leaves are 2-3 cm wide and bottle green. This variety is especially suited to being mixed with other Echinodorus in South American landscapes with angel fish or discus. A free, bright location promotes stable growth and formation of inflorescences with the small shoots. The plants on the pedicel are also called adventive plants
