    Echinodorus Tropica

    Price:  £5.79

    At the beginning of the 1980's, the aquatic plant nursery Tropica received a shipment of plants that included a deviant form of Echinodorus Parviflorus, which was cultivated in Asia. In 1985, this plant was described as the cultivar Echinodorus parviflorus Tropica and has since found widespread acceptance. Growing to a height of 5-10cm, it is a good candidate for the aquarium foreground. Its lighting needs are much greater than those of the original variety. It alsorequires good nutrition and CO2 supplementation to ensure optimum growth. In nano cubes solitary plants of this type are set off well against more willowy varieties. in larger aquariums we advise arranging several individual plants in a group.
