Echinodorus grisebachii 'Tropica'


The origins of this miniature Echinodorus are 5-10 cm. It probably came about via mutation in some nursery stock in Asia. Growing to a height of 5-10 cm, it is a good candidate for the aquarium foreground. Its lighting needs are much greater than those of the original variety. It also requires good nutrition and CO2 supplementation to ensure optimum growth. In Nano Cubes solitary plants of this type are set off well against more willowy varieties. In larger aquariums we advise arranging several individual plants in a group.
