Echinodorus palifolius

Echinodorus palifolius

SKU: 076


As a marsh plant, Echinodorus palaefolius var. Latifolius has round leaves with a horizontal leaf base. She is from Brazil.

In the aquarium, the leaves become narrower and the plant grows out of the water easily. This can be prevented by removing the long leaves that touch the surface of the water. This shortens the leaves underneath and keeps the plant under water. The plant can be grown above water in open aquariums, but the leaf edges often dry out when the humidity is low.
