Description

The Black Amazon Swordplant is named after the dark red-brown nervature pattern on its young, newly appearing leaves. This long known Echinodorus wild type was originally imported from the Amazonian part of Peru and is also known as "Echinodorus peruensis" and E. parviflorus.

Echinodorus grisebachii 'Parviflorus' develops a dense, broad rosette of countless sword-shaped, lanceolate leaves. About 3-4 new leaves appear each month.

Compared to E. grisebachii 'Bleherae' and 'Amazonicus', 'Parviflorus' remains considerably lower and is much more recommended for medium-sized tanks than the two bigger grisebachii forms. It is also less light-demanding.

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

The Black Amazon Swordplant is commonly known as Echinodorus parviflorus and also under the trade name "Echinodorus peruensis". It truly is a variety of E. grisebachii, a very widely distributed species in the American tropics, among which E. grisebachii 'Amazonicus' and E. grisebachii 'Bleherae' are found. Originally, this form of E. grisebachii was probably imported from the Bolivian and Peruvian Amazon.

Decades ago, some Echinodorus plants were cultivated under the name E. parviflorus that were said to only form flower stalks under short-day conditions. Those plants traded as E. parviflorus today, however, differ from them. The popular name "Black Amazon Swordplant" refers to the dark coloration of the young leaves.

E. grisebachii 'Parviflorus' is a relatively easy-to-care-for sword plant that does not need very intensive light. (read more)

Die pflanze kam in einem guten Zustand an. Die Blattecken hatten leider alle braune Spitzen, mitlerweile ist sie aber auf einem guten Weg sich zu erholen.
