Helanthium ‘Quadricostatus’ (also known as Helanthium bolivianum) from South America has characteristic light-green leaves 10-15 cm long which form a good contrast to the darker aquarium plants. It is most beautiful when planted in groups, each roset becoming 15-20 cm wide. In good conditions it produces runners which spread over the bottom. Very light leaves are a sign of a shortage of micro-nutrients. There is some confusion about the name of this plant, and it has been sold as Echinodorus bolivianus var. magdalenensis. 

Fast growing.

Really pleased with these. My plant skills are very limited but in just two weeks I have runners covered in young plants on both the plants I got from AquaEssentials.

Really lovely plant, the leaves are a bit lighter than pictured but I still love it. Doing really well with a fairly low tech setup!
