Description

The Amazon Sword is a long known, time-tested aquarium plant from tropical South America. It differs from E. grisebachii 'Bleherae' by considerably narrower leaves. This Echinodorus wild type is quite undemanding, however medium light intensity and a nutrient-rich substrate are recommendable.

Echinodorus grisebachii 'Amazonicus' develops a large, conspicuous rosette with countless leaves. It is especially recommended for large tanks with e.g. Discus or angelfish (Pterophyllum). The latter often use the swordplant leaves as spawning ground.

Please be aware that the submerse form of this plant could contain snails and other invertebrates.

Echinodorus grisebachii 'Amazonicus', the narrow-leaved Amazon sword, is widely known as E. amazonicus. It belongs to the species Echinodorus grisebachii, widely spread in the American tropics and known for its many varieties. E. grisebachii 'Bleherae' and E. grisebachii 'Parviflorus' are also counted amongst this species.
First, this plant was brought onto the market in 1938, back then still under the erronous name "E. brevipedicellatus" (a synonym of Echinodorus longipetalus). It was long carried under that name. Only in 1970, Karel Rataj described it as a new species (E. amazonicus). Its origins are reported to lie in the Brazilian Amazon depression (Rondônia and Pará), where it was found growing submersed in 50 to 100 cm deep stagnant to slow-flowing water.

Usually, forms of E. grisebachii that are quite similar to E. (read more)

Out of the packet the leaves were quite tall but very narrow. 3 weeks later I finally understood how huge this plant will grow to be! The plant seems to grow wide first, then tall. (read more)
