Amazon Sword Echinodorus (Red Pearl) LIVE AQUARIUM PLANT
Echinodorus Red Pearl Sword is a rare type of Amazon Sword with green leaves and red markings throughout. Like most swords, they should be planted directly into the substrate. When using inert substrate such as sand or gravel, it is important to supplement the plants with root tabs as Echinodorus are heavy root feeders. The plant can be grown both immersed and submerged and often, new leaves can grow to the top above the water line. Overall, this plant is easy and undemanding and very suitable for larger tanks.
Echinodorus is a very hardy species of aquatic plants. Most Echinodorus require nutrient-dense soil to thrive as they are heavy root feeders. Echinodorus grow large and are more suitable for larger planted aquariums.
