Helanthium Tenellum (Echinodorus) LIVE AQUARIUM PLANT

This light green lawn forming Helanthium (Chain sword) is great for aquascaping. It is also sold under the names Echinodorus tenellus, E. tenellus "Green" and Helanthium tenellum "Broad Leaf".

The plantlets are best planted into the substrate individually at a small distance. Under strong light (ideally 0.5 watts/litre or more) and a good nutrient and CO2 supply the plant will readily reproduce by forming long runners with many plantlets. Should it grow too fast, just cut off the new runners. If the lawn has grown too dense you ought to thin it from time to time.

Chain Sword (Helanthium tenellum, formerly known as Echinodorus tenellus) is a long-celebrated carpeting foreground plant in the aquarium hobby due to its ease of care and attractive grass-like appearance. This prolific plant can thrive under most levels of lighting and does not have any special requirements beyond nutrient-rich substrate (which is a requirement of most aquatic plants with roots). It propagates through runners and plantlets, which can be clipped and replanted elsewhere in the aquarium. It can also be planted emersed in terrariums, paludariums, and viquariums.
