Echinodorus grisebachii 'Bleherae'


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 large Amazon sword plant, as the well-known trade name, is probably the most popular Echinodorus species in aquatics. Larger and older plants inspire as a real eye-catcher in any underwater landscape. This magnificent beauty is particularly popular for South American landscapes, especially for aquariums with discus fish.

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