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.

 1•2•Grow! Are very young plants cultivated and delivered directly from our laboratory. The plants are guaranteed to be free from snails, algae and pesticides and therefore are totally harmless for sensitive shrimp and fish. The range offers unique plants!

Success with your aquarium depends largely on the proper plant choice. In a 1•2•Grow! cup you buy a myriad of plants which can be divided into small portions and cover a larger area. Plants are compact from the start so you will experience a dense and beautiful growth, if you give them the right fertilser and CO2 from the start! The range is perfect for small and medium sized aquariums, and your patience will be rewarded...

 1-2 GROW! have a large range of different plants, some common and some rare. Check them out!

Very pleased with this its rooted in quickly and looks very healthy

Probably won't spread quickly in my tank due to it filling space under bigger plants so it won't get much light, but either way its a very nice plant to look at.
