Originating from South America, the Echindorus tenellus is a fine and shapely looking plant with trim and handsome leaves and stems. This plant will throw off runners so if you are wanting to create a 'carpet' effect this plant is ideal for you. This has an unusual 'spider' shape to it and will happily flourish in a good rich substrate.
Note: this plant is grown emersed (outside of water) and as a result the leaves are much thicker. The video below shows the plant once it's been grown submersed (under water). Notice how the leaves are much thinner and flexible. So over time this plant will look like the video, but when you recieve it, it generally looks quite different.
