Aquadip Echinodorus uruguayensis

Plant in 5 cm pot.

The Uruguay Swordplant originates from the subtropical southeastern part of South America. It develops large submerged stands in relatively cool rivers and streams. Echinodorus uruguayensis is known for many years as robust, easy to grow and very decorative aquarium plant. The leaves are strap-shaped, flexible, leathery and somewhat transparent.. There are many forms of this species, differing in length, width and coloration of the leaves. The form offered by us is delivered from the nurseries with the label "Echinodorus africanus". It has freshly green, quite narrow, up to 40 cm long submerged leaves.

Echinodorus uruguayensis is not demanding and thrives well with cooler temperatures of about 16-24 °C, also tolerating higher temperatures. It is even capable of overwintering in outdoor ponds as long as long as they don't freeze through. Medium lighting is sufficient. As well as all Echinodorus this species benefits much from a nutrient-rich bottom. It develops a creeping rhizome with time that can be splitted for propagation. Its inflorescences with big white flowers and adventitious plantlets appear rather rarely under aquarium conditions.




All plants arrive potted in rockwool, please note: you have to take the plants out of the pot and plant it to guarantee proper growth and avoid rotting of the roots. Plants are natural items and can vary in size when they get delivered. All photos are examples only. The sizing further up references to fully grown plants.
