Small foreground plants for aquariums are in short supply, but Helanthium tenellum Green is one of the best. The runners spread round the aquarium, and growth is more compact when planted in a pot or between stones or other objects. A true ''lawn'' effect is only achieved at high light intensities, so you must make sure larger plants do not overshadow the plant. Plant individual plants a couple of centimetres apart (easiest with tweezers). A nutritious bottom promotes growth.

This plant is also known as pigmy chain sword or Echinodorus tenellus.

Cut these into 6-8 pieces and within 2 weeks you can see little runners appearing. Very pleased. Another brilliant plant

I had used some of these tiisue plants 2 years ago and had not been impressed . However this is much better, there were a lot of plants in really good condition . as its a small plant , i decided to keep them as a string to increase the chances of getting some to stay anchored . The ones that remained suspended in the air have send down very strong roots and there are signs of further plants developing . Fully recommended.
