Echinodorus argentinensis is one of the larger varieties and requires ample space in your aquarium. Prefers open top aquariums to look their best as the leaves can easily grow through the surface. The ornamental leaves are extremely sturdy and with little effort, they produce shoots and display beautiful white blossom flowers. For this reason, we recommend this plant for anyone who is new to the hobby or has a large aquarium.
Like all plants, they need daily fertilisers and liquid carbon (use Neutro T and Neutro CO2) and also pop 3 root tabs (use TerraTabs) underneath the root ball every 3 months.
Note: as with all XL plants they will vary to the picture which is purely an example. Some will be bigger some will be smaller but that's not something we have ANY control over as we are not the growers. What we can agree on is the bottom of the pot to the top of the leaf will be a minimum of 25cm when the plant has been in your tank for a couple of days (they need time to stretch out after shipping). If you are really after a specific size, message us prior to sending. Lastly, XL plants tend to only be readily available in the summer. In winter, plants grow much slower and as a result, XL plants are less available.
