Marble Queen Sword (Echinodorus Cordifolius) LIVE AQUARIUM PLANT
Marble Queen Radican Sword (Echinodorus cordifolius "Marble Queen") is a striking plant that stands out in any aquarium. It can grow to over 24 inches (61 cm), so it is an excellent choice for large, tall aquariums, terrariums, and paludariums. It can even thrive in low-tech setups with moderate to high lighting & nutrient-rich substrate!
Marble Queen Radican Sword is a member of the plant group known as Rosettes, which are known for their extremely short stem axis and for the way their leaves grow upward from the base of the plant. Approximate shipping size of our Marble Queen Radican Swords ranges from 6 to 8 inches tall. As with all our plants (besides tissue cultures), our Marble Queen Radican Swords are kept in water in a dedicated tank rather than plastic packaging, which means your plant will arrive much healthier.
Care for Marble Queen Radican Sword is relatively simple. This plant will benefit from CO2 supplementation, but it does not require it. While it will thrive in high lighting, it is also very durable and can do very well under moderate lighting. It requires nutrient-rich substrate for its extensive root structure. It produces very large leaves, so it must be planted with care to not cast too much shade on other plants as it grows. It will grow out of the water if it is not pruned. Marble Queen Radican Sword reproduces through rhizome division as well as by the production of side shoots, which can be removed & replanted. It is very intolerant of copper, so please keep this in
mind if you use tap water in your aquarium.
