This compact, green, low-growing Echinodorus cultivar was developed by the plant breeder Christian Iversen from Aquartica company in Denmark. Under aquarium conditions, it forms a spreading rosette of broadly elliptic, medium green leaves with wavy margin. In stark contrast to the many vigorously growing, large swordplants, it is even suited for the foreground and for nano aquariums as it gets only 10-20 cm. Furthermore it grows quite slowly and contents with only moderate light intensity.
This plant is mostly delivered in its emersed (terrestrial) stage, with more roundish, longer stalked leaves. Planted into the aquarium, it will develop its typical submerged growth habit.
As well as virtually all Echinodorus, the cultivar 'Aquartica' thrives best with a nutrient-rich substrate. It grows in soft to hard water and also tolerates pH values in the alkaline range. CO2 supply is beneficial, but not always necessary for its growth.
Echinodorus 'Aquartica' is a recommendable small sword plant that provides a green accent in the foreground to midground. It can also be used as a dominating solitary plant in the background of a nano tank.
