Description

Also know as a sword plant the Echinodorus argentinensis is one of the larger varieties and requires ample space in your aquarium. Prefers open top aquariums but still looks beautiful in closed aquariums. The ornamental leaves are extremely sturdy and with little effort it will produce shoots holding white blossoms.

This particular plant is rather rare and isn't often found in the trade, so buy yourself a couple and plant them together to make your tank unique.

For all plants in general do you have to take the mud away before putting it in your aquarium or do you put the mad in the aquarium with the plant

 
Staff

Mud? Not sure what you mean by that. The plants come with rock wool only in the pots which needs removing before planting.

Hi I purchased 4 of these plants a couple of months ago, they are growing really well with continual new leaves and have long roots, however the last week or so I have noticed holts appearing in the leaves and brown patches. I have the lights on for approx 8hrs a day and add easy carbo (5ml) daily, I also add 30ml of profito once a week when I do my water change, my tank is 330litres . None of the other plants seem to be affected. Any advice greatly appreciated.

You need to add A LOT more liquid fertiliser otherwise others will show the same deficiencies. Triple your liquid dose and add root tabs like TerraTabs
