Echinodorus subulatus

Echinodorus subulatus (family Alismataceae) needs a large aquarium to grow to its best. The leaves are dark green and fairly tough compared to Echinodorus radicans which is of similar size. This large plant is undemanding except for good lighting and like all fast growing plants will benefit from CO2 enrichment. The plant can be propagated easily by removing the rooted plantlets from the flower stalk and planting them in the substrate.
