Motherplant, grown in a 9 cm square pot.

In marshy conditions, Echinodorus palaefolius var. latifolius from Brazil has round leaves with a horizontal leaf base. Under water the leaves are narrower and longer (from 20-40 cm, and a 20-40 cm wide roset).

In the aquarium it tends to grow out of the water. This can be prevented by removing the long leaves just before they reach the water surface. The next leaves will then become shorter and the plant will remain under water. In open aquariums, the plant can be allowed to grow out of the water, but the leaf margins often dry out if air humidity is low. 

Note - the picture is a guide only and what you receive may be smaller (or larger) than the picture as we are not the growers and therefore cannot control the size. If you need to know specifically what size the plant is that we have atm, drop us an email and we can let you know.

Ordered two mother plants which were delivered promptly and very well packed. Between the two pots there were nine sizeable plants which I separated before planting. All are producing new leaves in less than a week. Very high quality plants. Delighted.
